Governor Jindal rejects Civil Service Commission merit plan

Gov. Bobby Jindal has rejected a proposal to stagger the merit pay of about 57,000 state workers based on performance, saying the state cannot afford the plan now.

State Civil Service Director Shannon Templet informed the State Civil Service Commission at its meeting today of the governor's veto.

Templet said board members and staff will go back to the drawing board and look at revising what Jindal rejected and possibly have a new plan ready for a vote at the commission's March meeting.
