State House approves Education budget, teacher pay raise


The Alabama House of Representatives unanimously approved the 2019 Education Trust Fund budget on Tuesday after a few hours of debate.

State lawmakers voted 102-0 to approve the $6.6 budget which provides a 2.5 percent pay raise for education employees in K-12 and two year colleges, a funding boost for pre-kindergarten by $20 million as well as additional programs, and funding for 197 more teachers in middle school grades.

The bill now moves to the Alabama Senate.
