Get the job done, legislators | Letter

I don’t understand why we taxpayers are having to pay for the state Legislature to go into overtime sessions, especially a second session, to pass a state budget and provide for the required funding of schools.

Legislators’ pay should be cut in half, or no pay if they cannot get the state business done within normal sessions. Both sides need to get off their extreme positions and get the job done. If we don’t like your outcome, we can vote you all out at the next election.
