CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Democratic lawmakers in the Nevada Legislature are taking another stab of implementing annual legislative sessions — and raising their salaries.

Senate Joint Resolution 8 introduced Monday by Sen. Tick Segerblom of Las Vegas proposes to amend the state Constitution authorizing 90-day legislative sessions in odd-numbered years and 30-day sessions in even number years.

Similar measures proposed over the decades have failed.

The measure also calls for paying legislators a monthly salary of not less than $2,000 a month for each month of their term.

Under existing law, legislators are paid only for the first 60 days of a 120-day session held every two years, amounting to about $8,777 per session. They are also entitled to per diem at the rate of $152 per day.
