"Dear Speaker Chenault:                                                                                                         
Under the authority of Art. III, Sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I                                                         
am transmitting a bill relating to State employees' compensation.                                                               
This bill will revise the salary schedule for State employees who are

will provide for two percent increases in fiscal years 2011, 2012, and

collective bargaining units. The bill will cover employees in the                                                               
executive, legislative, and judicial branches.                                                                                  
I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure.
