Budget Talks To Begin This Week

KSCB News - April 17, 2012 8:08 am

A Kansas Senate committee is preparing to

reopen work on a $14.1 billion state budget.

The Ways and Means Committee planned to meet Tuesday to resume

work on a spending plan for state government for the fiscal year

that starts July 1.

Legislators were close to taking final action last month on a

compromise budget crafted by House and Senate negotiators. But the

agreement unraveled just before lawmakers adjourned for a break

that ends April 25

The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to meet Thursday

and Friday to craft its version of a new spending plan.
