The Alabama House of Representatives passed the largest education trust budget in over 10 years unanimously on Tuesday.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey praised the House for its passage of the education budget and pay raises for education employees.
“Today, the House of Representatives passed an education budget similar to the one I proposed in January that represents the largest investment in education in a decade,” Ivey said. “This budget gives teachers a much-deserved pay raise, provides additional funding for our proven First-Class Pre-K program and funds the efforts of my ‘Strong Start, Strong Finish’ education initiatives. I commend Representative Bill Poole and the House leadership for their tireless efforts to send a very admirable education budget to the Senate.”
