PHOENIX (AP) - Two members of the Industrial Commission of Arizona have resigned after a lawmaker questioned daily payments they received even if they just send emails or read news articles.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports (https://bit.ly/1YBUEJF ) that Commission Chairman David Parker, Vice Chairman Michael Sanders and Executive Director Laura McGrory sent Gov. Doug Ducey resignation letters on Tuesday.

Sanders and Parker didn’t mention that they had been criticized by Sen. Kimberley Yee after she discovered they had charged the state $50 per diem payments for more than 200 work days in each of the last three years.

Yee said Wednesday that working on commissions is a public service that “should not be an opportunity for these members to receive a second salary or supplemental income.”

The commission oversees workplace safety in Arizona.
