Top state officials to get 2.2% raises



HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s top officials are in line to receive automatic pay raises of nearly 2.2 percent.
The raises required by a 1995 state law reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index. They take effect Dec. 1.
Top legislative leaders will see their salaries rise from about $128,000 to $131,000, while rank-and-file lawmakers’ salaries will increase from about $82,000 to $84,000.
Gov. Tom Corbett will be entitled to a $187,000 salary starting Jan. 1, but his spokesman says he’ll continue to refuse the raise and keep his salary at $175,000 — the level in effect when he took office in 2010.
Spokesman Kevin Harley says Corbett also will insist on keeping salaries for his Cabinet members at the 2010 level.
