Agreement Gives ND Employees 3 Percent Raises

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota lawmakers are setting aside money to give state government workers 3 percent pay increases for each of the next two years.

The raises are part of the state Office of Management and Budget's spending plan. North Dakota lawmakers approved the pay raises before the 2011 Legislature adjourned Thursday.

Last month, a Senate committee approved a 4 percent raise in the first year, followed by a 1 percent raise. State employees would have earned slightly less under that plan.

The 3 percent per year increases are in line with Gov. Jack Dalrymple's budget recommendations.

State workers will receive their next pay increase on July 1.
