Legislators discuss pay raise for state employees

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 6:49 AM

A couple of key legislators yesterday didn't rule out a search for money to give a small pay raise to state employees next year. Gov. Mike Beebe has said there isn't room in the budget. There were no COLAs this year.

Sounds like faith-based budgeting. Like the decision to restore some firefighting jobs at the Forestry Commission without providing a way to pay for them.
