State Employees To Receive Bonus

After the state announced Thursday a higher-than-expected budget surplus, Governor Mitch Daniels says state employees will be rewarded for helping make the surplus possible.

Daniels announced Friday that nearly all state employees would receive a one-time, merit-based bonus. Employees who receive the rating – “meets expectations” will get $500, those exceeding expectations will get $750 and state employees who receive an outstanding rating will receive $1,000.

Daniels says he wants to honor those who’ve helped create one of the country’s most stable fiscal states.

“I just can’t tell you how proud I think every citizen should be,” he said, “of this highly efficient and hard-working group of public servants has been doing the last few years and especially during the very difficult days of the last two years.”

The bonuses will cost the state roughly $15-20 million.
