Nassau County Legislators are paid $39,500 a year and haven't had a raise since 1995. NYS Legislators are paid $79,500 a year and haven't had a raise since 1999. Those for a pay raise say politicians work hard and have earned a pay hike. Those against argue these positions are part-time, and consider these salaries to be fair compensation.
