More Than A Third of Legislators Heading To Super Bowl
At $600 a pop, a Super Bowl ticket and the associated travel cost for attending the game in Miami this weekend is beyond the financial reach of most Hoosiers. The several thousand-dollar trip is not beyond the reach of many Indiana lawmakers, however. More than fifty of the 150 members of the Indiana General Assembly plan to attend Sunday's game where the Colts will face off against the Bears. The Star reports that the House of Representatives has cancelled business for Monday, and according to Jim Shella, only the Senate's staffers will be working on Monday. Keep this in mind the next time you hear a legislator complaining that legislators are underpaid.
