GOVERNOR IGE SUPPORTS ACTION TO SUSPEND SALARY INCREASES

News Release from Office of the Governor, Apr 13, 2021

STATEMENT:

"I fully support any action to suspend pay raises for myself, my cabinet, judges, and legislators that were set to go into effect on July 1. I informed my cabinet months ago that I would not be taking the salary increase recommended by the Commission on Salaries, and I asked my cabinet to do the same. As public servants, it is our duty to do our part to help the state rebuild the economy, while keeping the health and safety of our community our top priority."
