LANSING (WKZO) -- State employees are in line to get a little more in pay, but they'll be giving it back up to pay for their health insurance.  The state Employee Relations Board is making the recommendations to the Civil Service Commission, and they'll be voted on at their December 18th meeting.

The panel is calling for a two-percent pay raise for state workers in the first year of a two-year contract and another two-percent raise in 2015.  Out of pocket maximums for health insurance would double, co-pays for office visits will go up, and autism services will be covered for the first time at 90-percent.
