Court Furloughs Postponed

KSCB News - April 24, 2012 8:19 am

Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton

Nuss is postponing two of the remaining four days of court employee

furloughs based on assurances from lawmakers that they will approve

a funding request.

The furloughs were scheduled for alternate Fridays. The first

one occurred April 13 and closed courts throughout Kansas.

Nuss said Monday he’ll postpone the furloughs scheduled for

April 27 and May 11, based on discussions last week by the House

Appropriations Committee. Those planned for May 25 and June 8

remained unchanged.

Nuss ordered the furloughs after legislators failed to approve

$1.4 million in supplemental funding to keep the courts operating

through June 30.

He says if the funding doesn’t come through, he’ll reschedule

the postponed furloughs for later dates.
