The Florida House of Representatives passed House Bill 5001 Friday, giving state employees a $1,400 across-the-board pay raise. The raise has been split into two tiers: a $1,000 pay raise and $400 performance-based bonus.
The House has proposed a $1,400 pay raise for state employees. The Senate has proposed a 3 percent pay raise for state employees. Members of the House and Senate will have until early May to reach a final decision on the state’s new budget. If passed, the pay raise would take effect Nov. 1.
State Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda proposed a 7 percent pay raise for state employees and government professionals. Funding would come from the current budget surplus as well as more efficiently collecting taxes.
Gov. Rick Scott proposed a $2,500 pay raise for full-time teachers in a speech at Ocoee Middle School in Orlando. His proposal must be approved by state legislature and comes after another proposal to increase K-12 funding.
