Kansas House advances school funding plan

KSAL StaffApril 4, 2014

The Kansas House has given first-round approval to a plan for boosting aid to poor school districts after Gov. Sam Brownback urged fellow Republicans to support it.

The House’s 84-36 vote Friday advanced the measure to final action, which was expected later Friday. The vote came after Brownback praised the plan in a meeting with Republicans.

Final House approval would clear the way for negotiations with the Senate, which approved its own school funding plan early Friday.

Both are designed to satisfy a Kansas Supreme Court order last month directing lawmakers to increase aid to poor districts.

The House plan provides an additional $141 million during the next school year, offsetting the cost with budget adjustments elsewhere.
