Oregon judges propose pay raises

Oregon judges, among the lowest paid for their positions in the nation, could see consistent pay raises over the next few years.

Two bills introduced this Legislative session House Bill 2636 and Senate Bill 11 propose to increase the salary of Oregon judges this year by about $10,000 to $12,000, and establish an annual pay raise of about $5,000 to $6,000 through Jan. 1, 2020.

Circuit judges, including the seven in Deschutes County, would see their salaries increase this year to $135,775, a pay raise of more than $10,000. Their salaries would then increase by about $5,600 in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Thomas Balmer who requested the bills along with the Oregon Circuit Court Judges Association would be the highest paid judge in the state, earning $150,571 this year.
