The Legislature rejected Gov. Deval L. Patrick's amendment to the state budget that would have implemented the entire judicial pay raise effective on Jan. 1, 2014, opting instead for the same $30,000 raise to be implemented in two equal installments on Jan. 1, 2014 and July 1, 2014. The bill now returns to the governor for further action.
