DENVER (AP) - Colorado state workers may be getting bigger pay raises this year. 

State employees have not had a raise in four years and they were forced to take furloughs and pay cuts during the recession. 

Gov. John Hickenlooper had recommended a 1.5 percent pay raise for state workers, with the potential for similar merit raise. 

According to the Denver Post, state lawmakers on Wednesday proposed a 2 percent pay hike.
