Conn. judges to get first pay raise in six years

Connecticut judges will be getting their first pay raise in six years under the new state budget, which increases judicial salaries by 10.6 percent over two years. The raises were included in a budget bill of more than 500 pages that was approved by the Legislature Wednesday. Judges will see a 5.3 percent raise July 1 and another 5.3 percent increase next year. Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers said in a statement Thursday that she appreciated support of the salary hikes by lawmakers and Governor Dannel P. Malloy.
