"Because of the cost, Gov. Rendell is likely to veto a bill that would make all of Pennsylvania's district attorneys full-time workers, his spokeswoman said.
Kate Philips, the governor's press secretary, said the state pays 65 percent of a full-time district attorney's salary. At the current salary of $132,829, making district attorneys full time in the 40 counties where they are not full time now would cost nearly $3.5 million, she said. Part-time district attorneys earn from $53,131 to $79,697; the salary varies by county."
"The 27 counties with full-time district attorneys are Adams, Allegheny, Berks, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Carbon, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Franklin, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Luzerne, Lycoming, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Schuylkill, Washington, Westmoreland and York."
