Negotiators work budget deal on raises, funding

11:00:01 AM CDT - Thursday, April 07, 2005

Under a spending plan worked out last week by Kansas House and Senate budget negotiators, classified employees would receive a 1.25 percent pay raise on July 1, the start of the new fiscal year, and a second 1.25 percent pay raise around January.

Under the plan, the first raise would be funded internally by the state agencies. When the second pay raise is added, the total amount of the pay raise would be funded by the state.

In her budget, Gov. Sebelius had asked for a 2.5 percent pay raise effective July 1. While the Senate agreed with that, the House wanted to delay the pay raise until March 12.

The negotiators also approved a $10 million increase for state universities.
