Tuesday, the Alabama House Ways and Means Education Committee held a public hearing on the Education Trust Fund fiscal year 2019 budget.
Committee Chairman Bill Poole, R-Tuscaloosa, said this is a very good budget. Education employees will receive a 2.5 percent pay increase across the board.
The trust fund budget will be roughly $6.7 billion in 2019. The committee will provide reporters with spreadsheets Wednesday morning.
