(This amendment provides funding for the state share of a 3.5 percent teacher salary increase in the second year, consistent with the salary increase provided for state employees in the introduced budget. In addition, the amendment provides the increase for all public school employees, not just those employees required by the Standards of Quality. The amendment also eliminates language encouraging localities to use savings from the reduction in contribution rates authorized by the Virginia Retirement System to provide teacher salary increases and benefits in the second year.)
