After legthy debate, Missouri house legislaters vote to reject their own pay-raise. Jennifer Horton has the story from Jefferson City.
Yet, most representatives spoke against denying themselves the raise.
State Representative Pat Dourghtry says it's either a bigger salary or face losing future law-makers.Representative Mike Schilling spoke in favor of rejecting the raise... saying the money was too much too fast.
The resolution now goes to the state Senate.
From Jefferson City, I'm Jennifer Horton.
