Door left open for state politicians to get pay raises

Do you get a cost of living increase at your job? Republican State Senator Sue Rezin doesn’t want one.

Lawmakers left Springfield this weekend without voting on a proposed bill that would’ve stopped them from getting a cost of living increase this year. Rezin co-sponsored the idea that didn’t even make it to the Senate or House floor.

Rezin says “when our state is facing a more than six billion dollar deficit, this legislation is the least we can do to lead by example”. The Republican blames Democrats for not bringing the idea up for a vote.
