JUNEAU- The governor, lieutenant governor and commissioners would receive pay raises under a proposal by the State Officers Compensation Commission.

The commission was created to review salaries, benefits and allowances for those office holders and lawmakers.
It plans to finalize its preliminary recommendations at a meeting next week in Anchorage, with a public comment period to follow.
Nicki Neal is director of the state Division of Personnel and Labor Relations. She says the increases would be effective July 1, unless a bill disapproving all the recommendations is enacted 60 days after the recommendations are submitted.
Under the proposal, she says the governor's salary would go from $145,000 to $150,872. The lieutenant governor's salary would go from $115,000 to $119,657 and salaries for commissioners or principal department heads from $136,350 to $146,142.
