Still waiting: General Assembly goes quiet on budget

State budget writers do not appear to be any closer to an agreement than they were when the week began, despite closed-door meetings between the governor and lead senators and a new offer from the House.

The latest offer from the House, made privately to the Senate, offers a 7-percent raise to teachers – up from the original 5 percent and then 6 percent offers. It would still keep other state employees at a $1,000 base salary pay raise and five days bonus leave. The House offer also has remained steady at a 1.44-percent cost-of-living adjustment for retirees.
