Minimum wage bill headed to conference

By 67AM KPUA News

The state Senate has opted to go to conference committee with the state House on a minimum wage bill. Senate leaders had wanted to accept the House version of the bill, which would increase the minimum wage to $10 an hour by January 2018 and expand the tip credit to 75 cents. But senators meeting in a private caucus voted in favor going to conference instead. Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee Chair Clayton Hee had wanted to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by January 2017. The state's $7.25 an hour minimum wage has not been increased since 2007. The tip credit is 25 cents.
