Groups representing elected officials in Ohio who haven't had pay raises in years are hopeful that state lawmakers will increase those officials' salaries.
All those officials' pay is set in Ohio law and can be increased only by a legislative vote. Lawmakers have not taken such a vote in about 14 years when they approved cost-of-living adjustments for most through 2008.
A spokeswoman for House Speaker William Batchelder says he has not determined what to do about the pay-raise issue.
