Lawmakers worked late into the night on education reform legislation Tuesday.
The bill was debated on the house floor for hours before they finally called it quits around midnight and resumed work Wednesday morning.
It passed along party lines 52 to 44.
The bill set state funding at two percent for the upcoming school year and increased teacher pay to $32,000 a year.
That increase is smaller than Governor Branstad requested, but he still praised the houses’ work on the measure.
Now the bill heads to the senate.
