LAW TO LIMIT HEAD’S OF STATE AUTHORITIES PAY MOVES FORWARD

A new bill that would ensure no head of a government authority makes more than the governor passes through the state Assembly on Monday. The bill passes unanimously to limited their pay to $175,000 and the law also says no other employees can make more than cabinet members at $141,000. Authorities would see their benefits and laws about sick time use fall under state employee guidelines, if the bill is eventually signed into law. Some heads of state authorities make over $300,000.
