A bill being proposed in the Nebraska legislature could give state officials a bump in pay.

LB 217 passed through the Government, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee it would give top elected state officials a 20 percent raise. That includes Nebraska's governor.

The Governor's salary would go from 105 thousand dollars a year to 126 thousand.

The lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, state auditor, and state treasurer would all see a pay increase. State officials haven't had a pay increase since 2007.
