Arizona Lawmakers Review Plan To Boost Their Daily Expense Pay


Arizona lawmakers are trying again to raise the amount they receive for daily expenses, this time with a proposal that will only boost pay for lawmakers who live outside Maricopa County.

The measure approved Monday by the Senate Government Committee would increase daily expense pay for those lawmakers from $60 a day to the federal rate of nearly $190 per day.

The bill appears to address the concerns Republican Governor Doug Ducey raised when he vetoed a measure last year that would have boosted expenses for all lawmakers.
