State lawmakers may disagree about a lot of things, but one thing they are not debating is pay raises.

A Joint Committee voted for a four percent pay increase for lawmakers over the next two years and gave similar raises to the governor and other elected positions.

The pay increases don't go into effect until after next year's election.

Lawmakers voted six to nothing for the raises.
