Tulsa World: House member raises issues with Senate staff raises

The last raises given to senior House staff were in August of 2007, with the exception of the pay for Jennifer Monies, Benge’s press secretary.

This is a biased article because it talks about the amount of the raise, without stating that it brings most of the staff up to only $43,000 annual salary.The amount of the raise seems large because they were receiving a very low salary.

If the R’s want to be in charge and are supposed to be the party of fiscal responsibility, then they should set the example.

Wonder why Morrisette did not sponsor any bills to give state employees raises and also teachers raises when the Dimocroooks were in control' »The House has 29 fewer full time employees than it did when Democrats were in control, Benge said. »I bet the salaries combined of those 29 people do not equal the raises given.Of course now the Dimwits will start complaining because their « voters » are no longer employees of the state.
