Good news: HB 13, the state pay plan, has passed the House. This means it’s still alive, still in play, and we still have a chance to fully fund it and restore 5 & 5 for all state employees.
The bill was saddled with problematic amendments in committee, but we have a chance to fix it in the Senate.
Had it died in the House today, we would have had no pay plan.
Thanks to everyone who contacted House members. Thanks to the state employees who have lined the halls outside House chambers day after day, carrying signs asking the House to move HB 13.
Stay posted for more.
