Budget committee approves pay raises for state workers

DOVER — The General Assembly’s appropriations committee began budget markup Tuesday by approving pay raises for most state workers and rejecting higher health care premiums.

The Joint Finance Committee unanimously agreed to include in the budget salary increases of $1,000 for most state employees, as recommended by Gov. John Carney in January.

Not included among the recipients of the flat sum are teachers, who would receive a 2 percent bump instead, and collectively bargained employees like correctional officers.
