OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and most statewide elected officials and lawmakers won't get a pay raise this year, but judges will see a salary hike.

The Washington Citizen's Commission on Salaries for Elected Officials adopted a salary schedule Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for Inslee, Jaime Smith, told The Olympian ( http://bit.ly/10U0Dwa) a freeze is appropriate as lawmakers try to balance the budget.

Inslee's pay remains at $166,891 a year. There's no pay raise this year for the secretary of state, auditor, attorney general or insurance commissioner. But increases will boost the pay of lieutenant governor, treasurer, superintendent of public instruction and commissioner of public lands.

State legislator pay remains the same.

Supreme court justices and judges in appeals, superior and district courts are getting raises.

The changes are effective Sept. 1.
