House leaders are busy hammering out a tentative state budget proposal. House speaker jody richards says the House version of the budget will likely include more money for teacher salaries. Also...It would likely not be based on a repeal of the state's prevailing wage law. In a budget speech last month...Governor ernie fletcher proposed a two percent cost of living adjustment for teachers and repealing the state's prevailing wage law. Richards hopes the house will vote on the proposal this week.
