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
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.
