Salary Increase Sought by 92
LINCOLN — Legislators may
probe into the matter of state
house salaries again in the 1957
This is a perennial problem in

in the statehouse where there are
so many people.in the same clas

Some department heads, in an
apparent move to combat the
problem, have been hiking the
salaries of employees. One de
partment asked for pay increases
for 92 persons.
State Tax Commissioner
Fred Herrington turned them
down. Herrington has the job
of cheeking such requests to see
if the department involved has
enough money on hand to
After the request for the blan

Victor Anderson took over
The governor summoned de
partment heads and asked them
to cooperate in a “hold the line”
policy on salaries, regardless ot
whether they come from federal
or state funds.
Governor Anderson said his
policy is no blanket pay hikes.
And he asked the department
chiefs to explain to him by letter
any changes upward in salaries.
The governor doesn’t have any
control over what elected depart
ment chiefs do regarding salaries.
But he said he got a “fine ex
pression of cooperation’’ from the

whether the employees are paid

Anderson says he has a “hold

ments immediately under his
One of the big problems in state
government, he said, is inequality
of wages and policy concerning
employees. The governor said at
one time he felt that perhaps a
statehouse personnel director
might be part of the answer. But,
he said, “maybe some better
method could be worked out.”
“Any salary hikes should be
done every two years on approv
al of the legislature’s budget com
mittee,” the governor said. “A
study should be *made every two
years to see if we are paying fair
The legislature every session
gets into the matter of salaries
