So what do you think about this 300% pay raise the legislature is close to giving themselves? It has passed the State Senate with NO opposition, and passed the House committee this week with only minor protests. Is it a fait accompli? In my day as a Senator, I would have been recalled and run out of Ferriday on a rail if I had voted for such a large increase.
Is this a new day? Take the new poll up on the left to express your opinion. And below is the latest summary of the major opposition growing over the proposed legislative pay raise push .Â There was not one speaker in either the House or the Senate who spoke up on his controversial legislation.Â No debate. Amazing!

Â And take a look at what happened in Pennsylvinia when a similiar payraise bill was passed last year.Â Loisiana legislators might want to think this through a little more.
