Kansas Budget Tightens
02/08/2011
 

The Kansas House has approved operating rules that include a new provision making it more difficult for members to propose spending increases. Monday's vote was 76-45 to adopt to the rules. The provision says members won't be allowed to offer amendments during floor debate to increase spending in one part of the budget without offsetting it with proposed cuts elsewhere. Like the rest of the rules, it would be in effect for the 2011 and 2012 legislative sessions. Republican leaders back the change, and the GOP has a 92-33 majority. Supporters say the new budget rule will impose fiscal discipline. Critics say it gives too much power to the Appropriations Committee, because members won't be able to challenge its recommendations on overall state spending.
