Gov. Robert Bentley says it's unlikely teachers and state employees will get pay raises in this year's budgets.

The governor says his staff is studying the issue but that the money is just not there for a state employees' pay raise, which would mostly have to come out of the cash-strapped General Fund budget. He said it also looks uncertain whether the funds will be available for a pay increase for education employees.
