Governor Pleased With School Finance Progress

KSAL StaffMarch 25, 2014

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is optimistic legislators are getting closer to a school funding solution to satisfy a Kansas Supreme Court ruling, though he would like to see more of the new spending directed toward classrooms.

A plan emerged Monday night that would increase spending by $129 million in two areas identified as unconstitutional by the court.

Brownback says Tuesday that legislators were searching for the money to pay for the increases, and his earlier proposal to spend $16 million to boost the state’s share of all-day kindergarten costs is likely to be dropped.

The House budget committee is expected to begin briefings on the new GOP plan later Tuesday.
