To the editor:
While we are fully aware of our budget imbalance even with some current income exceeding forecasts, including current expenditures that are creating a shortfall in our current biennial budget, we must remind each of you of the plight of our state employees.
We must remind each of you there has been no state employee salary increases since 2009.
