You Paid For It: State Lawmaker pay hike

ALBANY, NY (WRGB)--It will be at least two weeks before we know what action if any will be taken on a possible pay raise for state lawmakers.

The state commission created to determine just that, meets two weeks from today, two days after the election.

A five page letter written by Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, makes it very clear he wants a pay raise for his members.

He will not meet with the commission though, and he's not alone.

CBS6's Greg Floyd has found many lawmakers want a raise, but don't want any interaction with the commission.
