HELENA — Some state employees and officials asked a Senate committee on Tuesday to pass a pay increase bill for state workers, but not before restoring it to the original level agreed to by unions and then-Gov. Brian Schweitzer last summer.

The Senate Finance and Claims Committee heard but took no action on House Bill 13, by Rep. Kathy Swanson, D-Anaconda.

            You are correct 88811, you cannot think. Such a shame. And for it to be so obvious is quite a burden to bear I bet.

            Doubt the executives need another raise, but definately the state employees. They work their tails off and certainly deserve raises. The state institutions have always been notorious for low wages.
