  • AK and HI locality pay 2011?
    The President's letter to Congress seems to be clear that the 2011 locality pay rate for Alaska and Hawaii is set at the 2010 rate. That rate was set at RUS rate of 14.16%. Clear enough. Alaska and Hawaii were scheduled for their own locality rate going into effect in 2011. This article has an official looking attachment Alternative Plan for 2011 that has Alaska at 24.69% and Hawaii at 16.51%. It appaears from this table that the locality rates recommended by the Federal Pay Council were included in this proposal. All other locality areas seem to reflect the 2010 rate. Just trying to get some confirmation since I live and work as a fed in Alaska.
