Kansas Budget Negotiations Abruptly Halted

KSAL StaffMay 17, 2013
Talks were scheduled to begin Friday morning, following three rounds of negotiations Thursday which saw legislators make steady progress.

Negotiations on the Kansas budget for the next two fiscal years have come to an abrupt halt after senators demanded a final offer from the House that could lead to ending the 2013 session.

The talks were scheduled to begin Friday morning, following three rounds of negotiations Thursday which saw legislators make steady progress.

Senate Ways and Means Chairman Ty Masterson asked his House counterpart to move the process further along, seeking a final offer on higher education and a state employee salary cap that would pass the GOP-dominated House.

But House Appropriations Committee Chairman Marc Rhoades said the request couldn’t be accommodated and canceled Friday’s meetings.

Rhoades says he hopes to meet with House leaders and resume talks with the Senate on Monday.
