Minimum wage hasn’t risen in over two years while rents have skyrocketed…


Everything from child welfare to highway safety and drought concerns to wildland firefighting costs are expected to be previewed as bills that could be launched when the next abbreviated legislative session begins after the first of the year.

Another major issue expected to be raised is the state’s minimum wage, now locked in at $9.25 an hour. No raise in the last two years.
