House Amends State Employee Pay Cut Proposal

The Kansas House has voted to include legislative staff in a proposed state employee pay cut. A House committee had originally voted to exempt lawmakers’ staff from the cut. During debate on a budget bill, some lawmakers called the exemption unfair. Representative TerriLois ("terry lois") Gregory is a Baldwin City Republican.

The pay cut would affect employees making more than 40 thousand dollars per year. Employees making more than 100 thousand dollars per year would see their pay reduced by 7.5 percent. Lower paid employees would see a smaller cut. House members could finalize their version of the budget later today (THUR).
