Well-paid chiefs of staff would go under House criminal budget plan

The House criminal justice appropriations committee has an idea for saving some $300,000 a year: Eliminate the chiefs of staffs for the Department of Juvenile Justice and the Department of Corrections.

The DOC chief of staff, Bonnie Rogers, now gets more than $147,000 a year -- more than the Governor. The DJJ chief of staff, Kelly Layman, is paid $137,000 a year -- also more than the Governor.

The proposals are included in the budget under consideration by Rep. Sandy Adams' committee.
