Some Minnesota state employees stuck under a salary cap for 15 years may finally be in line for raises. Many of the state’s top jobs have been subject to a cap based on the governor’s pay. Many could get raises after the Legislature’s vote this year to increase salaries for the governor and agency commissioners for the first time since 1998.
The Minnesota Senate approved a major funding increase for the University of Minnesota and MnSCU systems on Wednesday.
Minnesota lawmakers would get their first pay boosts since the late 1990s under a budget proposal rolled out Tuesday in the Senate that also includes salary increases for the governor and top agency leaders.
