teacher pay raise

For the first time in a decade, the Louisiana Legislature will take up an across-the-board pay raise for teachers and support staff in Louisiana’s public schools. 

Governor John Bel Edwards’ administration  presented a $31 billion proposal for next year’s budget on Friday. But before it can become a reality, a legislative stalemate would have to break. 

As 2018 draws to a close, Governor John Bel Edwards says he’s pleased with the progress that’s been made, and he remains optimistic about the future of Louisiana.

For the second time in as many weeks, Republican leaders in the House have rejected guidance from state economists who estimate Louisiana’s income will be higher than expected this fiscal year and next.
