Governor Announces More Cuts To Education
11/23/2009

Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson has announced cuts in funding for highway maintenance and public education to help cover an expected budget shortfall.

At a news conference Monday, Parkinson outlined a plan to reduce

spending by $259 million in the budget year that ends June 30. The

moves follow a report earlier this month that state revenues

continue to lag the estimates on which the budget was based.

Parkinson says he's eliminating $50 million in highway

maintenance projects and making a combined $38 million in cuts for

K-12 and higher education. He also announced a 10 percent reduction

in reimbursements to Medicaid providers.

This is the fifth round of cuts since the 2010 budget took

effect in July.
