The HB 2 free conference committee has just met and adopted a large number of amendments . . . all relevant . . . but the amendment folks want to hear about the most is the amendment to fund the state employee pay plan.
The committee’s adopted amendment is:
$.50 per hour effective January 15, 2016
$.50 per hour effective January 15, 2017
10% increase in state’s insurance contribute effective January 2016
8% increase in state’s insurance contribution effective January 2017
Effectively HB 2 now funds the pay plan we negotiated and ratified but delayed 3.5 months.
