Minnesota (WDAY TV) -- The Minnesota Legislature is hashing out final tweaks to this years budget, before the session ends tomorrow.

Today, lawmakers announced they will *not* be getting a pay raise. Earlier in the session the Senate passed a bill that would have given lawmakers a 10-thousand dollar raise by 2015.

The Senate is now looking at a house plan, to ask voters if the state should create an independent council to set lawmaker pay. There will also be no pay hikes for the governor as well as state agency managers.
