Gas tax projects prompt Jerry Brown’s pay raises for California highway engineers

Gov. Jerry Brown’s last contract with the state’s highway engineers includes some sweet perks aimed at retaining the longtime road designers, planners and project managers who’d be charged with executing work funded by the gas tax he backed last year.

Brown struck a two-year agreement with Professional Engineers in California Government that includes general wage increases of 4.5 percent immediately and 4 percent next July.

That’s a good raise, but engineers with more 20 years of experience are in line for an extra longevity bump.
