Thursday the senate voted 30-5 for the bill which now moves it forward to the House.

The bill also says the attorney General’s pay should raise to what district judges are paid. That means the AG would get a 16% increase. The Lieutenant Governor would be given a 19.6% increase next year followed by 2.5% annual increases.
