Teachers66 (1)LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) A raise for teachers could be coming if the Texas legislature approves a bill.

State Representative Richard Peña Raymond announced that he is introducing a bill proposing a $1,000 raise for public school teachers.

The bill had already been proposed during the regular session, but expired when the session closed.

The topic is being brought back by the governor during the special legislative session.

Funding for the raise has yet to be established, but Peña Raymond says there are options.

Peña Raymond says he initially proposed a raise of $1,500, however he says dwindling taxes from oil production has affected the figure.
