Starting after this year's elections, Alabama lawmakers will be paid the median household income for the state.

The state has hired a law firm to help determine that amount.

In 2012, Alabamians approved a constitutional amendment making the change in lawmaker pay.

It repeals the previous mix of salary and expense allowances lawmakers received.

In 2012, the median household income in Alabama was about $42,000.
