Kansas Education Legislation Could Spur Another Lawsuit

KSCB News - February 4, 2013 8:18 am

An attorney involved in an education funding lawsuit says a proposed amendment to the Kansas Constitution won’t end the litigation and could face its own legal challenge.

Attorney John Robb of Newton calls the proposal a "power play" by conservative Republican legislators. The measure would declare that the Legislature has the exclusive power to determine spending on schools.

Robb said even if the measure is approved by lawmakers and voters, the students and school districts he represents still have legal issues to pursue.

Robb also said the proposed statement explaining the measure for voters is misleading. He wouldn’t rule out a legal challenge.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Jeff King dismissed the criticism. The Independence Republican helped draft the measure and doesn’t think it’s vulnerable to a legal challenge.
