JUNEAU- A public hearing has been scheduled on a proposal recommending pay raises for Alaska's governor, lieutenant governor and principal department heads.

The State Officers Compensation Commission plans to hold the hearing Dec. 4 in Anchorage. A final report is due early next year.
The commission has recommended raising the governor's salary from $145,000 a year to $150,873 and the lieutenant governor's salary from $115,000 to $119,658. Each would get another 2.5 percent increase beginning July 1, 2015.
Commissioner salaries would go from $136,350 to $146,143, with increases of 1 percent beginning July 1, 2014, and 2.5 percent beginning July 1, 2015, in line with an employee compensation bill that passed during the last legislative session.
