The House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees each met today – Sunday, February 5 – to present and approve their respective amendments to the 2016-2018 biennium budget (HB 1500 and SB 900).
Both included a 3 percent across-the-board pay raise for state classified employees (and similar positions in non-executive branch agencies) effective July 10, 2017.
Unlike last year, this funding is NOT CONTINGENT on additional actions occurring, however employees must have attained a rating equivalent to “contributor” on their most recent performance evaluation to receive the increase.
