Minimum wage increase passes final committee

A bill that would increase the minimum wage throughout the state to $15 an hour has passed its final committee in the state Legislature.

House Bill 1191 will, if passed, increase the state minimum wage to $12 an hour in 2020 and $15 an hour in 2023.

The bill passed each of its House and Senate committees, with its final committee, the Senate Committee on Ways and Means, voting to pass it Thursday.

The current draft of the measure also would include a $50,000 tax credit for qualifying small businesses to offset the cost of increasing wages.
