Kansas Budget Director: Across-the-Board Cuts Not Planned

KSAL StaffSeptember 27, 2016

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s budget director is telling state agency secretaries that Brownback isn’t planning to propose across-the-board cuts in their budgets next year.

Budget Director Shawn Sullivan sent an email Tuesday to Cabinet secretaries saying some “reduced resources” proposals agencies submitted would be harmful.

But Sullivan’s email leaves open the possibility of Brownback proposing targeted budget cuts.

Sullivan had asked state agencies to outline proposals for meeting a 5 percent reduction in state funding. The administration has said it will not make the recommendations from Cabinet agencies public, viewing them as internal documents not subject to the Kansas Open Records Act.

Kansas has struggled to balance its budget since Republican legislators slashed personal income taxes in 2012 and 2013 at the GOP governor’s urging as an economic stimulus.
