Why do legislators get paid for this special session?

This is a letter to the editor that was in the Review Journal.

"It's no secret that the special legislative session that begins Tuesday costs money-money that we don't have and will add to nevada's current deficit. Might I suggest that lawmakers show each nevadan some good will by working the special session for free?

Since they didn't get the job done right the first time, they should be willing to consider this one a make=up to the citizenry."

I agree. I actually think that the legislators should pay all the expenses for this special session. If they didn't realize that income would drop due to the recession when they met in 2009, they really do not belong in office.

They spend every dollar with no thought to the future. It seems to me that they only want to spend more so they try to think of ways to get more revenue instead of trying to spend less and thinking of ways to cut taxes.
