Kansas Senate Adopts Budget Bill

KSAL StaffMay 2, 2014

Kansas senators have approved a budget that completes spending for state agencies for 2015, including bonuses for state workers and funds to shrink a waiting list of disabled people needing health services.

The Senate’s 22-18 vote Friday sends the bill to the House, which was to vote later in the day.

The bill also includes more than $360 million for the Department of Corrections for the fiscal year starting July 1.

It’s the last major spending bill standing between legislators and adjournment of the 2014 session.

Negotiators finished the bill Thursday, shaking off the previous day’s report that Kansas collected $92 million less in taxes than expected in April. Republicans blamed changes in the federal tax code. Democrats argued the budget bill is irresponsible and unsustainable.
