CARSON CITY – Legislators are like everyone else: They like to get paid, even though their salary for the 120-day session is less than $9,000.
Less than four hours after the 2013 session opened, members of both the Senate and Assembly voted unanimously Monday for the $15 million bill to cover the costs of the 2013 legislative session.
Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to sign the bill as soon as it reaches his desk, which could be a couple of days.
In addition to their legislative pay, lawmakers receive a per diem living allowance of about $18,000 for the session.
