New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has signed into law a bill giving judges, Cabinet officials and other government officers a salary increase.
Murphy said in a statement Friday that the measure was "long overdue."
The issue last came up when lawmakers considered raises along with a change in the law to allow governors to profit from the sale of books.
Former Republican Gov. Chris Christie was interested in writing a book, lawmakers said at the time. The current measure would cost more $32 million over the next two fiscal years.
Judges salaries have not been raised in a decade. They would get an $8,000 raise under the bill. Cabinet members haven't had raises since 2002 and would see salaries go from $141,000 to $175,000.
The bill takes effect July 1.
