Lawsuit Filed Attempting to Block Lawmaker Pay Raises

NYS Legislature

A not-for-profit legal group, based in Albany, has filed a lawsuit to block state lawmakers' pay raises.

The Government Justice Center is representing four plaintiffs, including Rob Arrigo who says he is hoping for an immediate injunction.

The Center has filed a lawsuit seeking to stop pay raises for state lawmakers.

Gov. Cuomo, in a call-in to public radio, says everything has been above board.

If allowed to go into effect on January 1st, members of the Senate and Assembly would be the highest-paid lawmakers in the country. 

But there would also be strict limitations on how much they could earn in outside income.
