Brownback Signs 2 Year Budget, Vetoes Line Items
06/17/2013

Sam Brownback

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback showed his frustration with the budget passed by the Kansas Legislature by vetoing the Department of Corrections budget for fiscal 2015.
 
     Brownback said Saturday he signed the state's two-year budget, while also vetoing the Corrections Department's fiscal year 2015 budget and other measures. He said he vetoed that portion of the Corrections Department's budget because it was "inadequate." He approved most of the department's 2014 budget.
 
     The move, however, was largely symbolic because legislators will have an opportunity to re-work another Corrections budget for fiscal year 2015 next session.
 
     Brownback and Republican legislators made a point of fashioning two years' worth of spending, saying it would promote stability, allow for greater planning and give legislators more time to look at spending issues every other year.
