The Washington Times Daily - - METRO -

Gov. Terry McAuliffe says his bud­get pro­posal will in­clude a 1.5 per­cent, one-time bonus for state work­ers.

Mr. McAuliffe said Tues­day on WRVA-AM’s “Ask the Gov­er­nor” that the bonus would be paid in De­cem­ber 2017.

He said he’s set­ting aside $130.6 mil­lion for the pay boost, ca­reer devel­op­ment and money to re­duce salary com­pres­sion among law enforcement.

The state faces an $861 mil­lion bud­get short­fall for fis­cal 2016 and 2017.
