MONTGOMERY, AL - Alabama Governor Robert Bentley has signed the 2015 education budget into law.
The measure does not include the 2 percent teacher pay raise Governor Bentley wanted.
Lawmakers said there wasn't enough money to cover the raise and put more money toward benefits.
The governor could have let the budget die and called the legislature into a special session.
The budget goes into effect on October 1st.
