Governor Ivey Comments on Senate Passage of State Employee Cost of Living Raise

MONTGOMERY – Earlier today the Alabama State Senate approved Governor Kay Ivey’s request for a pay raise for all state employees. Governor Ivey released the following statement about the Senate’s action.
“We depend on state employees every day – after a decade without a pay increase, it is time we honor their hard work and commitment with a sensible raise. State employees are vital to good government, and I appreciate the work they do for the people of Alabama each and every day. I commend sponsor Senator Clyde Chambliss, General Fund budget chairman Senator Tripp Pittman and the members of the Senate for adopting the full three percent raise I proposed. I urge the House to move quickly and follow the Senate’s lead.”
