Media Advisory: Chafee Statement on Pay Increase

Governor-elect Lincoln Chafee will accept his statutorily authorized pay raise. He believes declining this raise would penalize his successor in the Governor’s office. However, the Governor-elect plans to take the net amount of his pay increase, after taxes, and use it to create a fund that will recognize outstanding performance of state employees. The details of this employee recognition program will be released after his inauguration in January.
