A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §18A-4-2b, relating to salary increases for teachers based upon residential housing costs.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §18A-4-2b, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 4. SALARIES, WAGES AND OTHER BENEFITS.
§18A-4-2b. Granting teachers salary increases based on housing costs.

Effective for the fiscal year beginning the first day of July, two thousand five, every eligible person employed as a teacher with three or more years of service shall receive an annual salary increase equal to two percent of the employee's regular salary, if that employee resides in a county where residential home prices are at least ten percent above the statewide average for residential homes. Every eligible employee with three or more years of service shall receive an annual salary increase equal to four percent of the employee's regular salary, if that employee resides in a county where residential home prices are at least twenty percent above the statewide average for residential homes. These incremental increases are in addition to any across-the-board, cost-of-living or percentage salary increases which may be granted in any fiscal year by the Legislature. And, every eligible employee with three or more years of service shall receive an annual salary increase equal to six percent of the employee's regular salary, if that employee resides in a county where residential home prices are at least thirty percent above the statewide average for residential homes. If an eligible employee with three or more years of service resides in a county where residential home prices are more than thirty percent above the statewide average for residential homes, the employee shall receive an annual salary increase of two percent of the employee's regular salary for every ten percent that residential home prices in that employee's county exceed the statewide average for residential homes.


NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to
provide salary increases for a teacher based upon residential housing costs. The employee shall receive an annual salary increase of two percent of the employee's regular salary for every ten percent that residential home prices in that employee's county exceed the statewide average for residential homes.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
