Verno 2 years, 12 months ago on Final budget includes governor's state pay plan

Is there a typo in this artcle? Notice when the pay raise starts. The fiscal year starts July 1, and the article states the raise goes in effect on Jan 1. If that's the case, thanks for $250 slap in the face which will probably not even cover the increase in our insurance premiums. The legislature also looks like they will pass the income tax reduction bill and further decrease state revenues anywhere from an estimated $600 million to $800 million a year. I believe The State of Missouri Employees have just received their final raise for a long time until the legislature figures out cutting taxes does not increase revenue for the state or bring a significant amount of jobs to our state to offset these cuts.
