State Capitol Renovations Tops Budget Talks

KSCB News - May 4, 2011 6:06 am

An ongoing renovation of the Kansas
Statehouse remains a sticking point in legislative budget
negotiations.
However, senators have scaled back a proposal for issuing
additional bonds to keep up with the massive project’s rising
costs.
Senate and House negotiators planned to resume talks Wednesday
on a $14 billion spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July
1. The three senators and three House members still have dozens of
differences between their chambers to resolve.
The Senate’s version of the budget would have authorized an
additional $55 million in bonds. The House’s version didn’t include
any new bonds.
Legislators already have authorized $285 million in bonds for
the renovation. It began in 2001 and is supposed to be completed in
2013.
