INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence has approved salary increases of up to 6 percent for the state's top employees.
The Republican announced this week state employees will be eligible for pay-for-performance raises based on their upcoming annual performance reviews.
Employees meeting expectations will get a salary boost of 2 percent, those exceeding expectations 4 percent and outstanding employees 6 percent.
"Government works every day because our state employees care about the people of Indiana," Pence said. "On behalf of Hoosiers across our state, I offer my thanks for a job well done in 2014."
The raises are projected to cost the state $28.4 million.
