Missouri senators have taken the final step to deny pay raises for themselves and other elected officials.
Senators voted 25-2 against the raises late Monday. They had until Wednesday to act.
The vote came after Republican Gov. Eric Greitens put pressure on lawmakers to oppose the raise, which prompted a prickly response from some senators.
Republican Sen. Paul Wieland described Greitens' tactic as intimidation and said he felt insulted.
