OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Judges on Oklahoma’s appellate courts and statewide elected officials like the governor and attorney general won’t be getting pay raises next year under a measure approved by the House.

The House voted 54-34 Wednesday for the resolution by House Speaker Jeff Hickman. The proposal would allow pay raises of up to 6 percent for district attorneys and district judges across Oklahoma. The measure still must be approved by the full Senate.

A state board last year recommended a 12 percent pay raise for the judiciary, whose salaries are linked to the pay for statewide elected officials like the governor.

District judges currently earn $124,000 annually, while associate district judges earn $114,000 and special judges make $105,000.
