Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was expected to sign a series of bills on Monday approving a $9.8 billion budget for the state for 2018.

The budget included several measures designed for education, including the first of a two-year, 2 percent raise for teachers as well as package that would allow universities to bond for more buildings, according to the Arizona Republic.

The budget represents a 1.9 percent increase from the 2017 spending plan. It includes plans for increased spending for rural highways as well as the continued phasing in of corporate income tax cuts.
