Republican Lawmaker Critical Of GOP School Plan

A Republican lawmaker in Kansas is criticizing GOP leaders for trying to push a plan quickly through the Legislature to overhaul how the state distributes aid to public schools.

Rep. Don Hill of Emporia said Tuesday that GOP leaders are ramming through a plan they drafted and moving too hastily. Hill serves on the House Appropriations Committee, and it was expected to vote later Tuesday on the plan.

The vote would come only five days after GOP legislative leaders unveiled it.

House committee Chairman Ron Ryckman Jr. of Olathe said quick action will solidify a key part of the next state budget as lawmakers work to close a projected shortfall of nearly $600 million.

The plan replaces the state’s current per-student aid formula with predictable grants to each school district.
