Kentucky Chief Justice John D. Minton says lawmakers need to provide more pay equity for court system employees across the state.
Minton says the first pay increases should go to the lower paid employees, some of whom make less than the federal poverty line — about $23,500 for a family of four.
As chief justice, Minton has administrative oversight of the entire state court system and is responsible for delivering the budget request to lawmakers.
