Troopers pay raise

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers could soon be getting their first pay raises in seven years.

Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill that authorizes across-the-board pay hikes of between 14 and 20 percent.

However, the salary increase will not go through unless lawmakers and Gov. Fallin can agree on a way to fund it.

The price tag is estimated at about $8.5 million.

The raises are based on a study from last year that found salaries for Oklahoma Troopers are below the regional average.
