The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the raises will go to almost 1,700 employees at the Department of Revenue and another 56 at the Criminal Justice Information Authority.

Quinn spokeswoman Kelly Kraft says the administration has determined those agencies have sufficient funding to pay the raises after seeing more retirements and attrition than expected. Kraft says the raises will cost more than $3 million.

Quinn last year canceled pay raises for about 30,000 unionized employees at 14 state agencies, saying the General Assembly didn't allocate enough money to honor the raises and meet payroll expenses for the entire year.
