GOP Leader: Stop Employee Payments

DeLuca McKinney  July 31

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Republican leader of the Connecticut
Senate is calling on Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to support
efforts to end the practice of making special payments for
longevity on the job to veteran state employees.

Senate Minority Leader John McKinney asks Malloy in a letter to
back an amendment the minority plans to propose that would
eliminate the special bonuses for non-union state employees. The
letter was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.

McKinney said the GOP is disappointed that Malloy did not
include an end to the twice-a-year payments, which begin after a
state worker has 10 years on the job, in his budget.

On April 22, the state made more than $22 million in longevity
payments to workers.

A message was left seeking comment with Malloy’s office.
