Washington Politicians Get Raises

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington state politicians will be seeing more in their paychecks.  The Washington Citizens' Commission on Salaries for Elected Officials has approved pay increases for lawmakers, statewide elected officials, and judges.  Legislators will get a two-percent raise this year and another two percent in 2018, even though they haven't completed an operating budget on time in the past eight years.  The governor and attorney general will each get a two-percent pay bump, judges will get a four-percent increase over two years, and two-percent raises will be received by the lieutenant governor, secretary of state, state auditor, insurance commissioner, and superintendent of public instruction.
