YPFI: Lawmakers stiffed by commission could vote on raise themselves

ALBANY -- Lawmakers were stiffed by a pay raise commission earlier this month. Now, if they want a higher salary next year, they've got to do it themselves, before the end of this year.

Lawmakers from both houses will be returning to Albany next week for hearings and conferences.

They could also tackle stronger ethics reform in a special session -- after which there is a possibility the commission would consider the salary hike.
