Who makes what in WA state government

OLYMPIA — The biennial “Who makes what” list for state employees is out this morning, and at the top of the list are the football and basketball coaches at the University of Washington.

The first 55 slots for total compensation among all state employees went to coaches, administrators, professors or other staff at state universities and colleges, according to a list released by the state and arranged on a spreadsheet by the Washington Policy Center. At No. 56 was the first non-college-related state employee, Gary Bruebaker, the chief investment officer for the State Investment Board, who received $303,581.

Gov. Chris Gregoire, by comparison, received $166,890. That puts her 955th on the list of state employees, which includes more than 150,000 names.
