Three years after the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima, Japan destroyed a nuclear power plant, the effects are still being measured.
No pay raise for state legislators
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.
