Governor To Give State Of The State

KSAL StaffJanuary 15, 2015

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is preparing to outline his agenda for lawmakers’ 90-day session in his annual State of the State speech and is expected to address a strategy for closing the state’s looming budget shortfalls.

The Republican governor is giving his speech Thursday evening to a joint session of the Republican-dominated Legislature.

Brownback is likely to disclose at least the outlines of his plan for dealing with the state’s financial problems before releasing detailed budget proposals Friday.

He and legislators must close budget shortfalls totaling more than $710 million for the current fiscal year and the one beginning July 1.

The shortfalls arose after legislators cut personal income taxes in 2012 and 2013 at Brownback’s urging to boost the economy.
