House Bill 136 as passed the House of Representatives provides for a 4% salary increase for public education employees of the several local boards of education, the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind, the Department of Youth Services School District (except employees covered under the state's merit system), the Alabama School of Fine Arts, the Alabama School of Mathematics and Science, the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering and the two-year postsecondary institutions under the Board of Trustees of the Alabama Community College System for fiscal year 2023. The total estimated cost of this salary increase is $178.6 million, including the associated retirement and FICA increases, for fiscal year 2023 and each year thereafter.

In addition, this act will increase the obligations of the funds of the various local boards of education for fiscal year 2023 and each year thereafter by undetermined amounts dependent upon the extent that local boards of education have employees paid from federal or local funds or provide a pay raise on salary supplements.
