No raises recommended for most state elected officials for the next two years…

That, unanimously, is the recommendation of the Washingon Citizens' Commission on Salaries for Elected Officials.

The group, voting minutes ago, agreed to freeze salaries for executive branch and legislative branch elected officials. A final decision's due in May, after public hearings.

They're still voting on judges' salaries. A proposal for no increase this year and a 2 percent increase next year for judges just failed.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
