RICHMOND, Va. - State employees fare well in the two-year budget rewrite the House Appropriations Committee will release this week, which includes money for raises for some employees, bonuses for others, and full funding of pension rates recommended by the Virginia Retirement System.

The budget includes $61 million for a 2 percent raise for employees in high-turnover jobs, a 2 percent bonus in the second year for other state workers, and $76.3 million to accelerate funding of retirement contributions for state employees, including state police, sworn law officers and judges.
