Legislation that would have given Baldwin County Revenue Commissioner Teddy Faust a 39 percent pay raise will not move out of the Alabama House, state Rep. Steve McMillan said Tuesday.
The proposal, which was approved with a 17-3 vote on May 26 by the state Senate, would have set Faust’s salary “equal to the compensation” of the county’s probate judge.
The commissioner currently makes $90,000. Had the proposal been approved by the House and signed into law by Gov. Robert Bentley, the salary would have jumped to $124,895.93, which is what Probate Judge Tim Russell makes.
