Albany, N.Y - All but two of the 100 highest paid state employees last year worked for either SUNY or the City University of New York.
An analysis by the Empire Center shows the highest-paid state employee was the CEO of SUNY's Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse -- Dr. Robert Corona. His pay totaled more than $787,000.
Four of the top 100 earners received six-figure raises.
And more than 1200 state employees made more than the governor.
