Bill Eliminating Legislative Pay Raises Sits In Committee

A bill filed by State Representative Dwight Kay (R-Glen Carbon) to halt pay raises for lawmakers is stuck in the Rules Committee.

House Bill 6235 would continue furlough days and reject the automatic cost of living adjustment to legislative salaries. Kay says Democrats are trying to sneak pay raises through the General Assembly during what is supposed to be the last week of the spring session.
