You Paid For It: Absent Lawmakers

Updated: Wednesday, October 30 2013, 07:08 PM EDT
ALBANY -- When you spend a lot of time at the capitol, you can’t help but track who’s there and who’s not.

You are paying lawmakers anywhere from $79,000 to well over $100,000 a year to do a few things at the capitol. Those things include showing up for the session as well as for meetings and hearings. Important hearings on critical issues are often held in Albany in the second half of the year when there is no session, and that’s when out-of-town lawmakers are often nowhere to be found.You Paid For It: Absent Lawmakers
