BATON ROUGE - State officials say after years of government budget problems 1,400 state employees will be getting pay raises.

About 1,100 employees of the Division of Administration and 331 at the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness are in line for increases.

Whether and when the rest of the state workforce gets any pay adjustments is unclear.

The state has about 72,000 classified and unclassified workers.

Commissioner of Administration Kristy Nichols said in a statement the hikes are linked to job performance.

Nichols said money has been saved by improving the agency's procurement process, consolidating its information technology department and the combining of several offices under DOA.
