Kansas Governor Criticizes Court Over School Aid

KSAL StaffJune 2, 2016

Gov. Sam Brownback isn’t saying yet whether he’ll call the Kansas Legislature into special session to respond to a recent state Supreme Court order on public schools.

The Republican governor said Wednesday after lawmakers adjourned their annual session that he will work with their leaders and Attorney General Derek Schmidt to respond “aggressively” to any action by the court to close the state’s schools.

The court on Friday rejected education funding changes made earlier this year by lawmakers. It warned that schools will be unable to reopen after June 30 if lawmakers don’t approve additional changes by then.

Lawmakers adjourned without approving a response to the court order. House Speaker Ray Merrick called the court “judicial hostage takers.”
