Louisiana House Votes to Double Pay

The Louisiana House of Representative voted to increase their pay more than double today. The original bill would have called for an increase from $16,000 to $50,000. The house 'compromised' and only voted the raise to $37,500. The governor has said that he will not veto the bill. The legislators are also paid (currently) a $143 per diem when they are in session in addition to the base pay.
