Palin refuses pay raise

A state commission has recommended the Governor of Alaska's salary be raised from $125,000 to $150,000. Currently, Palin is the 24th lowest paid governor.

Spokesman Bill McAllister:

"Her view is, it's just not appropriate to accept a pay raise in the middle of the term."

It's unclear whether she'll accept the pay raise when her term ends, in 2010.
