New York Gov. George E. Pataki on Tuesday called on the Legislature to boost judicial salaries for the first time in seven years, but declined in his annual budget presentation to endorse a more ambitious Office of Court Administration proposal that would provide for regular pay hikes, afford judges a retroactive salary increase and narrow the pay gap between some similarly situated judges.
Pataki’s proposal, which mirrors one he made last year, would provide most judges with a pay hike this year of about 19 percent “to ensure that the state continue to attract and retain the finest jurists in the country.”
