Lawmakers to forego raise

POSTED: December 23, 2008 5:00 a.m.

ATHENS -- Georgia legislative leaders have voted to put off a 2.5 percent cost of living increase for state lawmakers.

The vote came at a meeting Monday of the Legislative Services Committee. The committee met at a legislative training session at the University of Georgia in Athens.

Cost of living adjustments have already been frozen for state employees as Georgia grapples with a budget deficit.

Lawmakers are set to return to the state Capitol on Jan. 12 for the coming legislative session.
