Brown back Signs Budget Cuts Bill, Urges Lawmakers to Fix School Formula

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a decision
Measure cutting funding for the state’s K-12 public schools this
Morning.
It was part of a stop gap measure lawmaker passed last week to avoid a cash problem for the state.
Public schools in Kansas took an immediate 1. 5% hit to their budgets.
“I also reiterate my call for the legislature to reform equalization factors in the current school finance formula. By reforming the equalization factors, the legislature could, and should, restore the recent 1.5 percent allotment to K-12 education funding.

“As the legislature continues its work, I encourage them to present a budget package with revenues exceeding expenditures in Fiscal Years 2016-2017,” Brownback said in statement.
