Fifty-fourth Legislature Second Regular Session - 1998
IN THE SENATE
SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 122
BY COMMERCE AND HUMAN RESOURCES COMMITTEE
1 A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
2 STATING FINDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE AND ADOPTING CERTAIN RECOMMENDATIONS, AND
3 STATING POLICY TOWARD FUNDING RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING PAY POLICIES FOR
4 STATE EMPLOYEES.
5 Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 WHEREAS, the Legislature has by law provided that the Governor and Idaho
7 Personnel Commission report to the Legislature their recommendations for pro-
8 posed pay policies, together with estimated costs thereof; and
9 WHEREAS, the Legislature has received and reviewed the report of the Gov-
10 ernor dated January 14, 1998, and the report of the Idaho Personnel Commission
11 dated September 26, 1997; and
12 WHEREAS, the Legislature endorses the Compensation Policy adopted by House
13 Concurrent Resolution No. 58 in the 1994 Legislation Session which is restated
14 in part as follows:
15 1. It is the mission of the Idaho State Government to provide a high
16 level of responsive service in meeting the needs of its citizens. To
17 accomplish this mission, it is the policy of the State of Idaho to provide
18 a total compensation system that attracts, retains and recognizes employ-
19 ees. The foundation of this system is to reward employees for performance
20 in the achievement of service delivery goals and objectives.
21 2. It is intended that the State of Idaho pay competitive job market
22 average salaries. Employees should expect to reach the market rate within
23 their assigned pay grade based upon acceptable performance.
24 3. It is the policy of the Legislature that employees be rewarded and
25 advanced in their assigned pay grade based on their performance in the
26 achievement of organizational mission, goals and objectives.
27 WHEREAS, the Legislature recognizes the need to maintain spending patterns
28 within established guidelines.
29 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
30 sion of the Fifty-fourth Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of Repre-
31 sentatives concurring therein, that:
32 1. Recommendations in the report of the Idaho Personnel Commission and
33 not concurred in by the Chief Executive are hereby rejected.
34 2. Recommendations in the report of the Chief Executive are hereby
36 3. The Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee is directed to appropriate
37 an amount not to exceed $21,012,000 from the General Fund to fund these
38 recommendations for state agencies, colleges, and universities.
39 4. For those agencies funded in total or in part from non-General Fund
40 money, the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee is directed to appropri-
41 ate in as nearly as possible the same manner as for General Fund funded
43 5. To the extent possible, within agencies' appropriations, directors are
44 expected to provide salary increases consistent with the stated legisla-
1 tive policy above. It is further expected that particular emphasis shall
2 be placed on employees who are below the policy rate within their assigned
3 pay grade and who have performed in an acceptable manner in the same job
4 class for five years or more.
5 6. The effective date of implementation of these salary adjustments shall
6 be June 14, 1998.
7 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that appropriations measures to fund nonclassified
8 employees be prepared in as nearly as possible the same manner as for classi-
9 fied employees.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This concurrent resolution fulfills the Joint Legislative Change in State Employee Compensation (CEC)
Committee's duty to accept, reject or modify the Governor's pay raise recommendation for state
employees, then forward that action to the full Legislature.
This legislation adopts the Governor's FY 1999 CEC recommendation of 5%. This recommendation
would increase the payline by 2% and distribute the balance on a merit basis.
It directs the appropriation of money for state employee pay increases.
It states the expectation that salary increases be consistent with existing legislative policy, and that
particular emphasis be placed on satisfactory-or-better performing employees with five or more years of
service in their current position but who are below the policy pay rate.
This concurrent resolution directs the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee to appropriate
$21,012,000 from the General Fund to fund the CEC recommendations for state agencies, colleges, and
universities. The total impact to all funds would be $35,509,900.
