Top State earners face pay freeze

More than 1,300 doctors, lawyers and other highly paid state employees face salary restrictions pending an audit to explain why some are making more than they're allowed.
More than 1,300 doctors, lawyers and other highly paid state employees face salary restrictions pending an audit to explain why some are making more than they're allowed.

The State's Director of Personnel Administration froze salaries in February for anyone in a class of non-union civil servants now making more than their pay grade.

Under State law, they should receive salaries ranging from about $74,000 to $160,000 a year.

However, they are making much more than that.

One medical director at the State Department of Developmental Services is paid more than $280 thousand a year.

The Senate has reduced its budget by five percent and is freezing employee raises.
