Governor Ivey released the following statement about the Senate’s action.

 

“We depend on state employees every day – after a decade without a pay increase, it is time we honor their hard work and commitment with a sensible raise. State employees are vital to good government and I appreciate the work they do for the people of Alabama each and every day. I commend sponsor Senator Clyde Chambliss, General Fund budget chairman Senator Tripp Pittman and the members of the Senate for adopting the full three percent raise I proposed. I urge the House to move quickly and follow the Senate’s lead.”
