Kansas Moves a Step Closer to Cutting Education Aid

KSCB News - March 18, 2011 6:20 am

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas Senate committee has endorsed a

proposed state budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1.

Yesterday’s vote by the budget committee sends the bill to the

full Senate, but it’s not clear when the chamber will debate the

measure.

The spending plan would leave the state with a balance of nearly

$7.5 million when the 2012 fiscal year ends.

Senators followed most of the proposals by Republican Gov. Sam

Brownback, including a $226 per student reduction in aid to the

state’s 289 school districts. They also included money to prevent a

loss of federal funding for special education.
