No pay raise for state legislators

July 03, 2012

Arizona state legislators won’t be getting a pay raise any time soon. 

A proposal to get the pay raise issue on the November ballot couldn’t get the needed support. A vote Tuesday before a legislative commission considering the measure ended in a tie.

Lawmakers currently earn $24,000 a year. Voters have rejected pay raises for legislators five times since the last pay hike was approved.
