Kemp calls for $3,000 teacher raise, 2 percent for Georgia employees

Gov. Brian Kemp made a substantial down payment on his campaign promises Thursday, recommending that teachers get a $3,000 raise and state employees a 2 percent pay hike.

If the budget Kemp proposed Thursday is approved, the raises will put more money into the paychecks of more than 200,000 educators and state employees in Georgia.

Kempís budget plan for fiscal 2020, which begins July 1, also includes borrowing $150 million for a new voting system and $100 million for bridge projects.

The record $27.5 billion budget - $53 billion when federal and other funds are included - would borrow about $1 billion for construction, equipment upgrades and other projects.
