ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — Day two of the
legislative session is underway at the Roundhouse and the cost is already racking up.
The legislature's 60-day session could end up costing taxpayers nearly $144,000 a day.
A house committee approved a bill Tuesday providing $8.6 million for expenses of the legislative session.
That includes salaries for staff, printing, mail, telephones and the $154 daily expense reimbursement that's paid to legislators rather than a salary.
