The bill by Representative Scott Martin of Norman provides for an across-the-board pay raise for troopers and is based on the recommendations of a recent study on state employee compensation.

That study shows troopers should receive a pay raise of between 14 percent and 20 percent. Officials say the bill would cost about $8.5 million annually when fully implemented.
