Gov. Robert Bentley says he still hopes to get a 2 percent pay raise approved for public school employees.

Gov. Robert Bentley says he still hopes to get a 2 percent pay raise approved for public school employees.

Bentley said Monday that he's glad that he and legislative leaders agreed to increase funding for the education employees' health insurance program, and he says that should keep them from having to pay higher costs. But Bentley says he wants the Legislature to do more with three meeting days left in the legislative session.

Bentley says he would like to see a teacher raise added to one of two pending bills that would give a one-time bonus to active state employees and retired state employees.

The raise would be for the 2014-2015 school year. It would mark the state's second consecutive 2 percent raise for school employees.
