Va. Gov.: No state employee raises
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell says state employees needn’t expect pay raises now or in next year’s budget.
McDonnell, who is drafting amendments to the final year of the current two-year budget, made the statement Tuesday during his monthly radio show on WTOP in Washington.
He said persistent revenue weakness collections in a slow economy means he won’t ask the General Assembly for raises next year.
State workers will get a 3 percent bonus this fall, but have have gone without a pay raise since 2007.
The governor also said he would consider eliminating state support for National Public Radio in the budget recommendations he submits Dec. 17.
