Judicial pay increase approved

Judges within the state court system will see a 2 percent salary increase under a bill passed by the Legislature April 5.

LB862, introduced by Lincoln Sen. Colby Coash, provides for an increase in salary commensurate with the increase proposed for state employees in fiscal year 2012-13.

The pay increase applies to state Supreme Court judges. All other state judges’ salaries are based on Supreme Court salaries.

Senators passed the bill on a 48-0 vote.
