PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island’s top five elected officials are getting raises.

The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1BF8jT5 ) that by law, salaries paid to the governor and other general officers may go up once every four years. The pay raises reflect the rise in the Consumer Price Index for the Northeast for the previous four years, or about 8 percent.

The governor’s annual salary is rising to $139,695 a year from $129,210. The attorney general will be paid $124,991, up from $115,610.

According to information from Allison Rogers, policy director at the Department of Administration, salaries paid to the lieutenant governor, treasurer and secretary of state are rising to $117,637 from $108,808.
