NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam says the budget he will present during his State of the State address seeks to improve salaries for Tennessee's teachers.

The Republican governor told reporters before his address Monday evening to the Tennessee General Assembly that the budget significantly invests in teacher pay.

Haslam had planned to increase teacher salaries in 2013, as well as pay for state employees, but decided not to because of poor state revenues.

He later vowed to make Tennessee the fastest-improving state in the nation in terms of teacher pay but acknowledged his actions would depend on state revenues.

Haslam and state financial officials said earlier Monday that the revenue outlook for next year is promising.
