House Committee Approves Pay Cut for Lawmakers
A House committee voted today to pass a bill that would cut state lawmakers' salaries and make changes to their cost of living adjustments.
The bill would cut current salaries by 10 percent and stop any increases in cost of living adjustments.
It would apply to all members of the general assembly executive branch, state's attorneys' offices, and certain people appointed to state government.
The pay cut would only be in effect for fiscal year 2014.
