Updates on the 2023 Legislative Session
Mar 12, 2023
Sean Waite (left) and WFSE members meet with Rep. Chipalo Street to discuss contract funding.

AWAAG’s primary goal this session is to ensure that our members’ work is fully funded in the FY 2023-2025 operating budget. Our main focus will be funding AWAAG’s 2023-2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement, which provides for a 4% increase to the salary grid on July 1, 2023, another 3% increase on July 1, 2024, and a new retention premium for AAGs with 5-plus years of service. We will also advocate for fully funding the AGO’s budget to support the implementation of any new policy bills that would have significant workload impacts on our members. 

In addition to advocating for full funding in the operating budget, we will be tracking policy bills related to “lunchbox issues” (compensation, job security, and working conditions), expanding collective bargaining rights for our fellow state employees, and promoting continued progress on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

If you would like to get involved in AWAAG’s lobbying efforts this session, or if you have any suggestions regarding which bills to prioritize or other improvements we can make to our legislative advocacy efforts, please contact Caroline Cress.  

Here are photos of our 2023 visits to the Capitol.
