House Approves Bonus Pay for State Workers Bill

February 29, 2012, 6:05 AM

The South Dakota House has approved a modified version of Gov. Dennis Daugaard's plan to give state workers a one-time bonus.

Under the plan, no full-time employee who has worked for the state for at least three years would get less than $2,300 or more than $7,500.

The idea is to give employees who make $46,000 and below a bonus based on that salary, and base the highest payment on a $150,000 salary.

Those hired by the state before March 24, 2009, would get a 5 percent payment, those who have worked at least two years would get 3.4 percent of their salary. One-year employees would get 1.7 percent.

The House voted 64-5 Tuesday. Next the Senate will vote on the House's changes.
