AG Urges Governor to Veto Lines in Kansas Budget

KSAL StaffJune 14, 2013

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is still considering action on the state’s budget, with a spokeswoman saying a decision is expected over the weekend.

Legislators finished work on the budget on June 2, laying out how to spend $14.5 billion in each of the next two fiscal years. The Republican governor has until Sunday by law to sign the bill, veto all or parts of the measure or let it become law without his signature.

Spokeswoman Sherriene Jones Sontag said late Friday the governor was still reviewing items in the budget and was expected to come to a decision on Saturday.

Brownback’s fellow Republican, Attorney General Derek Schmidt, has urged the governor to veto two budget items that Schmidt says would be a hardship on his office.
