Michigan lawmakers and other elected officials will not be getting a pay raise any time soon.


The State Officers Compensation Commission won't be meeting until next month when they will analyze the state's economy and budget outlook before making a decision.


The last pay hike in 2002 saw double-digit increases and were automatically approved by the Legislature under the Michigan constitution.


The constitution has since been changed requiring a vote by the lawmakers.


State lawmakers receive nearly $72,000 a year in salary, with a $10,800 expense allowance.
