Testimony supports raise for island's judges

by Mindy Aguon

Members of the local Judiciary appeared before lawmakers this morning to testify in support of Bill 181, which would provide an up to 4% pay adjustment for Superior Court judges.  Members of the lower court bench haven't seen a pay adjustment since 1991.

Supreme Court Associate Justice Philip Carbullido testified, "If the legislature does approve Bill 181, we have to now find it within our budget to fund the $30,000 increase and Senator [Frank] Aguon made it very clear to us that if he was going to support such legislation, it should not have any impact in terms of the budget that's already been adopted."
