EAST HARTFORD – Gov. Dan Malloy was Connecticut’s 1,379th highest paid state employee in 2013 according to new data compiled by the Yankee Institute for Public Policy for its online transparency database CTSunlight.org.

The Governor’s salary is set by state statute at $150,000. There were 1,378 state employees who received gross pay in excess of $150,000 for calendar year 2013. A list of all 1,379 employees paid more than $150,000 is available here.

Among the top ten highest paid state employees in 2013, all were associated with UConn or the UConn Health Center. As in many states, high profile coaches are the state’s highest paid employees.
