MONTGOMERY – Governor Kay Ivey on Tuesday praised the Alabama House of Representatives for its passage of the Alabama Education Trust Fund Budget and pay raises for education employees. Governor Ivey’s full statement is below.

“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. 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.”
