The West Virginia House of Delegates has passed its version of the state budget for 2019-2020 that includes funding for teacher raises.

It was not clear about pay increases for WV State Police.

The House voted 92-5 Saturday afternoon on the $4.6 billion spending bill.

A key difference between the House bill and the Senate's is the funding for teacher raises.

The House bill passed Saturday includes $67.7 million to cover the raises, averaging 5 percent overall. The Senate version (SB 150) does not include funding for pay raises for teachers and school service personnel.

Senate Finance Chairman Craig Blair has said pay raises will be included if and when the Senate passes a House pay raise bill (HB 2730). That bill has been stuck in the Senate Education Committee for more than a week.
