HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 35
BY COMMERCE AND HUMAN RESOURCES COMMITTEE
1 A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
2 STATING FINDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE, 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 Divi-
7 sion of Human Resources report to the Legislature their recommendations for
8 proposed pay policies, together with the estimated costs thereof; and
9 WHEREAS, the Legislature has received and reviewed the report of the Gov-
10 ernor dated January 19, 2000, and the report of the Division of Human
11 Resources dated October 1, 1999; and
12 WHEREAS, the Legislature endorses the Compensation Policy adopted by House
13 Concurrent Resolution No. 58 in the 1994 legislative session, which is
14 restated in part as follows:
15 1. It is the mission of Idaho state government to provide a high level
16 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
18 provide a total compensation system that attracts, retains and recog-
19 nizes employees. The foundation of this system is to reward employ-
20 ees for performance in the achievement of service delivery goals and
22 2. It is intended that the state of Idaho pay competitive job market
23 average salaries. Employees should expect to reach the market rate
24 within their assigned pay grade based upon acceptable performance.
25 3. It is the policy of the Legislature that employees be rewarded and
26 advanced in their assigned pay grade based upon their performance in
27 the achievement of organizational missions, goals, and objectives;
29 WHEREAS, the Legislature recognizes the need to maintain spending patterns
30 within established guidelines.
31 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
32 sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the House of Representatives and
33 the Senate concurring therein, that:
34 1. Recommendations in the report of the Division of Human Resources and
35 not concurred in by the Chief Executive are hereby rejected.
36 2. Recommendations in the report of the Chief Executive are hereby
38 3. The Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee is requested to appropri-
39 ate an amount not to exceed $14,629,300 from the General Fund to fund
40 these recommendations for state agencies, colleges and universities.
41 4. For those agencies funded in total or in part from non-General Fund
42 money, the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee is requested to
43 appropriate in as nearly as possible the same manner as for General
44 Fund funded agencies.
1 5. To the extent possible, within agencies' appropriations, directors
2 are expected to provide salary increases consistent with the stated
3 legislative policy above. It is further expected that particular
4 emphasis shall be placed on employees who are below the policy rate
5 within their assigned pay grades and who have performed in an accept-
6 able manner in the same job class for five years or more. State
7 agency directors are also encouraged to allocate higher percentage
8 pay increases to lower pay grade employees who have performed in an
9 acceptable manner.
10 6. The effective date of implementation of these salary adjustments
11 shall be June 11, 2000.
12 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that appropriations measures to fund nonclassified
13 employees be prepared in as nearly as possible the same manner as for classi-
14 fied employees.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to ratify the
Governor's recommendation with the regards to state employee
salary compensation for fiscal year 2001. This recommendation
consists of funding for a 3.5% merit-based increase, and a
5% increase in the payline salary structure. The resolution
also provides guidance to state agencies on how money for
salary increases should be distributed.
As stated in the Governor's CEC recommendation, the General
Fund fiscal impact of a 3.5% CEC increase is $14,629,300 in
fiscal year 2001. The 5% move in the payline salary structure
would be paid for with a portion of the 3.5% CEC funds.
