Governor proposes pay increases for prosecutors, court staffers

Money-dollar-divided-300x224The new two-year budget to be offered by Gov. Bob McDonnell Monday will include more money to increase pay for assistant commonwealth’s attorneys and circuit court deputy clerks.

McDonnell’s budget would provide $4.2 million ($2.1 million each year) to support the second phase of a salary increase for assistant commonwealth’s attorneys to achieve a starting salary of $52,000 per year, according to a new release from the governor’s office.  The first phase was provided in the 2013 Session of the General Assembly.

Under the proposal, each of the 577 full-time assistant commonwealth’s attorneys would receive a $3,308 increase and the 11 part-time assistant Commonwealth’s attorneys would receive a $1,654 increase, the release said.

The budget also will propose spending over $860,000 ($430,789 each year) to support a four-percent salary adjustment for circuit court Deputy Clerk I positions and a two-percent salary adjustment for circuit court Deputy Clerk II positions, the release said.

McDonnell presents his final biennial budget to a joint meeting of the General Assembly money committees Monday.
