Senate Calls For Smaller Raises For Teachers

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Teachers would receive smaller pay raises
under a budget proposal being considered by Senate lawmakers.

The Senate Appropriations and Revenue Committee was preparing
for a vote on the two-year spending plan on Monday morning. The
measure was expected to get to the Senate floor for a vote Monday
afternoon.

The proposal calls for 1 percent wage increases in each of the
next two fiscal years for public school teachers. A proposal
approved by House lawmakers earlier this month would provide raises
of 1 percent in the first year of the budget and 3 percent in the
second.
