Budget Highlights

In the 2023 Legislative Session, three (3) Special Pay Bills were enacted to cover the personal service, fringe benefit, and non-personal service costs resulting from the ratification of collective bargaining agreements with two (2) state unions, and the extension of annual salary increases to Management / Confidential employees from FY 2024 through FY 2026. The total value of the Special Pay Bill appropriations is $814,576,983.

State agencies have drawn the requisite appropriation authority from the pay bills to cover the retroactive and current-year cost of the pay and fringe benefit increases, and the appropriation authority will continue to remain available for this purpose through March 31, 2024.

The three enacted pay bills include:

  • Chapter 189 of the Laws of 2023 for United University Professions employees.
  • Chapter 190 (Part A) of the Laws of 2023 for the Public Employee Federation employees.
  • Chapter 190 (Part B) of the Laws of 2023 for the Management / Confidential employees.
