MONTGOMERY, AL (AP) -
Gov. Robert Bentley says it's unlikely teachers and state employees will get pay raises in this year's budgets.
The governor says his staff is studying the issue
but that the money is just not there for a state employees' pay raise,
which would mostly have to come out of the cash-strapped General Fund
budget. He said it also looks uncertain whether the funds will be
available for a pay increase for education employees.
Mac McArthur is the executive director of the
Alabama State Employees Association, and he says rank & file
employees have not received a pay increase since 2008.
The chairman of the education budget committee said
he has not received a "hard estimate" on how much tax revenue will be
available for the education budget.
