Otter proposes 3% merit raises for state workers

Gov. Butch Otter is paying tribute to the citizens, volunteers and state employees, and also said he wants to “express my gratitude to our extraordinary state employees whose hard work and dedication help us all succeed. So let me begin by saying that my Executive Budget for fiscal 2019 includes a 3 percent pay increase for the men and women who make our state government one of the best run in America.” The governor’s budget proposal includes funding for 3 percent Change in Employee Compensation, or CEC; agency directors would determine, based on merit, how much each employee would get.
