NY lawmakers privately debating pay raises
State lawmakers are privately debating whether to vote for a pay raise next year.
In order to do that, lawmakers would have to call a special session in Albany before the end of the year.
State legislators currently earn a base pay of $80,000. The last raise for state lawmakers was 15 years ago. If legislators do not approve a pay hike by next week, it cannot be voted on again for another two years.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is insisting that legislators agree to a series of reforms for campaign finance and ethics laws if they're going to vote for a pay raise. Lawmakers have not agreed to the reforms.
