Lawmakers Urge Pre-Session Cuts

KSAL StaffNovember 27, 2016

Some lawmakers have expressed concern over Gov. Sam Brownback’s plan to wait until January to fix the state’s $349 million budget deficit.

The Wichita Eagle reports the three governors who preceded Brownback used their executive authority to make cuts before the Legislature convened when the state faced financial difficulties. And until this year, Brownback had done the same multiple times.

Brownback’s decision to wait this year has bothered some lawmakers of both parties, who say that will exacerbate the problem.

A spokeswoman for Brownback, however, says the governor “intends to submit a budget proposal in January that makes significant cuts unnecessary.”
