Elected state officials could see a pay raise soon. Whether they do depends on the recommendation of a salary commission.
Every two years, the Missouri Constitution requires the commission to meet and decide whether legislators, executives and elected judges get a pay raise.
The 12 members on the commission were just appointed by Gov. Jay Nixon and have until Dec. 1 to make their recommendations.
The last time the group met, members recommended cost-0f-living increases, but lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected them.
