Governor Kelly Vetoes Republican-Backed School-Funding Bill

A Republican-backed, six-billion-dollar school-funding plan is a no-go after Governor Kelly vetoed the bill on Thursday.

Administration officials say Governor Kelly nixed the measure due to concerns it would cut funding for rural schools.

Meanwhile, both leaders of the Sunflower State’s bi-cameral, GOP-dominated legislature criticized the veto, asserting that the Kansas constitution limits line-item vetoes to appropriations.
