OLYMPIA— The House approved a supplemental budget Tuesday that would restore cost-of-living increases for teachers and put more money into the state’s public education system.

The budget, estimated at more than $200 million, passed on a mostly party-line 53-44 vote, and now leaders in that chamber and the Senate, which passed its budget last week, will start negotiating a final budget plan. Democratic Rep. Larry Seaquist, of Gig Harbor, voted with Republicans in opposing the budget measure.
