  • The Arkansas House has approved a budget proposal that keeps salaries flat for the state's elected officials. Lawmakers voted unanimously Tuesday to level-fund the salaries of officials in the executive and judicial branches of government in the coming fiscal year. Last week a legislative committee decided against providing prosecutors and judges with a 2-percent cost-of-living adjustment. Legislative leaders say they are open to revisiting that salary increase later this session. Lawmakers are also considering a proposal to provide a cost of living increase for all state employees. The Legislature returned to the Capitol Tuesday after a four-day break.
