Eye On Olympia

And none for judges either…

A push to give judges a 2 percent pay raise next year died, 6 votes to 8, so the salary commission is recommending no raises for any state elected officials for the next two years.

Next up: hearings around the state. But with most state officials saying “no raise, please,” it’s pretty hard to imagine a groundswell of recession-saddled citizens flooding the hearings to insist that taxpayers be allowed to pay politicians more. Final decision: May.
