Section 83: Pay and allowances for certain duties

Section 83. (a) For duty performed under sections 60 and 61 by members of the armed forces of the commonwealth not serving in a federal duty status, there may be allowed and paid from funds appropriated for that purpose the same rate of pay of like grade as they would receive if they were on active duty status in the armed forces of the United States with less than 2 years service and such subsistence, travel or other allowances as the adjutant general may authorize.

(b) For duty performed under sections 38, 40 and 41, there shall be allowed and paid to members of the armed forces of the commonwealth from funds appropriated for that purpose the same rate of base pay for length of service and allowances for housing and subsistence as if they were on active duty status in the armed forces of the United States; provided, however, that the compensation shall not be less than $100 per day and shall be subject to subsection (c).

(c) For duty performed under said sections 38, 40, 41 and 60, the pay and allowances authorized under this section shall be reduced by any amounts received from the United States government as pay or allowances for military service performed during the same pay period.
