(KSL News) Utah teachers could be getting a pay raise.

The House passed a $68-million bill that would give educators a $2,500 raise.

Lawmakers also want nearly $35 million to go toward a one-time bonus of $1,000 for every teacher.

Meanwhile, the House also approved House Bill 416. The measure would give $15,000 loans to teachers to be used to buy a home.

If the teacher stayed in Utah and taught for five years the state would forgive $5,000 of the loan. If the borrowing teacher stayed for 10 years, the entire loan would be paid off.
