 The West Virginia House of Delegates has unanimously passed the conference committee report on House Bill 4145 that will provide a 5 percent pay raise for teachers, service personnel and state police.

The Senate still needs to approve the conference report from Tuesday morning before the bill is sent to Gov. Jim Justice.

On Tuesday morning, Gov. Jim Justice announced that a deal had been reached to provide a 5 percent pay raise across the board for all state employees.

In their conference committee meeting Tuesday morning , senators receded their 4 percent bill to go with the 5 percent approved by the House.

The governor and lawmakers have said they expect teachers and service personnel to return to the classroom Wednesday.
