Memorandum


    The payment plan numbers could not be figured due to the fact the wording in the bill is unclear. The Bill does not specify if longevity pay raises deal with years of service with the Division of Corrections or is it years of service with the state. Further it is also unclear as to if the raises are retroactive in nature and if they stack one on top of another for purposes of the first Salary adjustment under the pay plan.
