AL House to debate education budget

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — State representatives will give their input on education spending for the next fiscal year, including whether teachers and school employees will get a pay raise.

The House of Representatives will debate the proposed Education Trust Fund budget this afternoon

The Alabama Senate approved a one-time 1 percent bonus for public education employees. However, the House budget committee last week stripped away the raise and instead put the money toward school employees' insurance costs.

Republican Gov. Robert Bentley is seeking a 2 percent raise plus the additional insurance funding. That has put him at odds with Republican legislators who say there is not enough room in the budget for both.
