JFAC backs CEC Committee’s recommendation for 2% raises for state workers, half permanent, half one-time

The Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee this morning, after much discussion, voted unanimously in favor of writing in funds for 2 percent raises for state workers as it sets each agency budget, with 1 percent of that permanent and one percent in one-time bonuses. That follows the recommendation from a special joint legislative committee on state employee compensation that convened this year for the first time since 2008. The JFAC motion also follows the recommendation in encouraging additional merit raises or bonuses for high-performing workers from salary savings in the agencies’ budgets.
