Senate Cuts Education Funding
05/13/2011
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas senators have approved a $13.8

billion budget for 2012, clearing the first of two key votes.

The measure advances 28-11 late Thursday, sending it to the

House where debate was set to begin later in the evening.

The plan calls for cutting government spending by almost 6

percent for the fiscal year beginning July 1. It also would leave

the state with a cash cushion of $50 million at the end of the next

fiscal year.

The bill eliminates a budget shortfall that at one point

approached $500 million.

Spending cuts reflect a loss of one-time federal stimulus

dollars the state received to support education and social service

programs.

Schools will see a $232 per student cut in base state aid in

2012, reducing the amount from $4,012 in 2011 to $3,780.
