its birthing:

Governor's Memorandum in Support

Public Protection & General Government Budget Bill S.2005/A.3005

(Republican-Senate Majority's White Book)

 & then:

2. A corrupt, behind-closed-doors, three-men-in-a room budget deal  to create a Commission on Legislative, Judicial & Executive Compensation,
rubber-stamped by a corrupted legislative "process"
