University System of Georgia Reflects on State Bonus Plan


Davis Cobb, Correspondent

As a follow-up to Wednesday’s announcement of a state employee bonus plan by Georgia officials, the University System of Georgia stated on Friday that it would “mirror the state plan.”


The initial state-issued plan intends to issue $1,000 in bonuses to state employees making less than $80,000 a year; Gov. Brian Kemp and Georgia House Speaker David Ralston state the plan is meant to benefit around 57,000 employees in several different state agencies.


While this plan was initially part of another intended to provide bonuses to teachers, The USG has made the claim that they will “mirror the state plan,” though what exactly entails at this time is unknown, as is who exactly it will affect.
