We have a preview of the upcoming legislative week, including tomorrow’s scheduled House vote on the state’s $1 billion General Fund budget. It includes a 3% raise for state employees, their first in almost ten years. We also report on an expected Senate committee vote tomorrow on the state’s $6 billion education budget, which could send it to the floor as early as Thursday. And we’re joined by Rep. Adline Clarke of Mobile, who announced today a pay equity bill. It would prohibit state employers from paying any of their workers at a lower rate than those of the opposite sex for similar jobs.
