Kansas Revenues Short of Education Board Request
07/18/2011
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas policymakers are expected to learn

within days just how well they did at cutting government spending

and collecting revenue in the last fiscal year.

Preliminary numbers from legislative staff suggest the figure

could be as much as $175 million in the bank as Kansas enters

fiscal year 2012. That's a far cry from where the state was just a

short six months ago when Gov. Sam Brownback and the

Republican-controlled Legislature was staring at a deficit that

approached $500 million.

Brownback and legislators trimmed spending by close to $800

million in the state's overall $14 billion budget from the previous

year, including reducing funds for public schools by $232 per

student.

Now, with revenues improving, the State Board of Education is

asking that those funds be restored.
