State Employee Health Care Costs Stay Constant

Good news for state employees. The House Committee on Appropriations for General Administration reviewed the budget yesterday for state employee fringe benefits – and it projects no increases for state employee health care premiums or co-pays. 

There’s also money in the budget for another cost-of-living increase / raise. It’s not enough necessarily to get us out of the basement, but it’s a another step in the right direction which I support.
