Top PA officials eligible for 2.2 percent raises

Written by The Associated Press | Nov 20, 2012 12:03 PM

(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 December 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.

Governor Corbett will be entitled to a $187,000 salary starting January 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.
