Michigan residents who serve as jurors could get a pay raise and a higher mileage reimbursement rate starting next year.

According to WILX-TV 10, the state house unanimously sent Gov. Rick Snyder legislation Tuesday requiring that jurors be paid $30 for their first full day instead of $25.  They would get $45 for each subsequent day, above the current $40 rate.

The bills' supporters say while compensation isn't intended to reimburse jurors for all out of pocket expenses, it should at least cover parking and lunch.
