Weeks Sues over Legislative Pay Hikes

Russ Weeks, the former state senator and 2008 GOP nominee for governor, filed his threatened lawsuit Tuesday over the legislative pay raise bill passed earlier this year.

As The Associated Press reports, Weeks objects "to both $5,000 salary increases for each member of the Legislature and retroactive increases in daily compensation for some lawmakers."

Others covering the Supreme Court petition include MetroNews, The Register-Herald of Beckley and The Charleston Gazette.
