Otter, Top Officials To Get Big Raises

Idaho’s top elected officials would get bigger raises than state employees next year, and additional raises every year following for the next four years, under legislation that cleared a Senate committee this morning; the lieutenant governor's salary would jump nearly 20 percent. You can read my full story here at Under SB 1395, co-sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis and House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, the secretary of state, treasurer and state schools superintendent each would get a 2.5 percent raise next year and each year thereafter, as would the governor; while the lieutenant governor would get a 19.6 percent raise next year, then 2.5 percent each year thereafter/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Are. You. Kidding. Me?
