Pat McCrory's $1.1 million cabinet; pay hikes from previous years

Pat McCrory's cabinet makes more than $1 million -- a $78,000 boost since Republican lawmakers changed state law to allow the governor to set the salaries.

The eight cabinet salaries have been set in state law for years but the legislature gave the next governor the ability to change them. McCrory hiked his cabinet payroll an average 8 percent.

McCrory bumped four cabinet secretaries -- Health and Human Services, Public Safety, Transportation and Commerce -- to $135,000 from the previous $121,807. Four other agency heads -- Environment and Natural Resources, Revenue, Administration and Cultural Resources -- increased to $128,000 from $121,807.
