Nev. Lawmaker Seeks Opinion on TV Contract

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - When state Sen. Barbara Cegavske reports for work each morning in the Nevada capital, she's collecting two paychecks - one as lawmaker, the other as consultant to a Las Vegas television station.

Cegavske draws $3,000 a month to give advice to NBC affiliate KVBC on education and legislative matters, something she sees nothing wrong with.

``I have done everything to the letter of the law,'' Cegavske said Tuesday. ``I have complied and done everything I'm supposed to do. It's unfortunate it's turned into what it's turned into.''

Unfortunate indeed.
