Senate Research Center S.B. 888
AUTHOR'S / SPONSOR'S STATEMENT OF INTENT
Current law allows institutions of higher education to take funds which may be appropriated for across-the-board salary increases and use them instead for merit raises. As a result, when money was appropriated by the legislature for across-the-board pay raises, university employees did not receive a raise.
