Nebraska voters will get the opportunity this November to give state lawmakers a raise and a shot at one additional term in office.
Lawmakers gave both constitutional amendment proposals final
The term limits proposal would let state lawmakers serve up to three consecutive four-year terms in office, for a total of 12 years.
Lawmakers are currently limited to two consecutive terms, or 8 years.
The measure passed its final reading, 31-14.
Voters will also have the chance to boost legislative pay to $22,500 per year, up from the current $12,000.
Lawmakers last received a pay increase in 1988, and supporters say the current salary makes it unaffordable for most Nebraskans to serve.
The proposal won final approval, 31-15.
