DENVER -

The Colorado Department of Personnel and Administration says 32,000 state workers need a 3.8 percent raise to catch up to workers in the private sector.

The report released Thursday also says the state also needs to pick up a larger share of workers' medical- and dental-insurance premiums.
    
According to the Denver Post, state lawmakers have already approved a state budget that included a 2 percent pay raise and up to 4.4 percent in merit raises.
    
Last year, a salary report said the state needed to raise pay by 7.2 percent to compete with the private sector.
