The increase is just 0.3 percent, smaller than most other years because of the region's sluggish inflation.
 
The bump takes effect Dec. 1 for lawmakers and Jan. 1 for judges and top executive branch officials.
 
The salary range for lawmakers starts at $84,000, up to $131,000 for the House speaker and Senate president pro tempore. The Supreme Court's chief justice will be paid $206,000, common pleas judges about $174,000 and district judges about $87,000.
 
Corbett will be paid almost $188,000, although his office says he only takes the $175,000 salary set for the governor back when he was elected in 2010.
