Board of Ed Votes to Cut Travel Spending

Members of the Kansas Board of Education have voted to cut their travel expense budget by 10 percent. The current budget is around 80 thousand dollars, split between the 10 board members. Board member Janet Waugh, of Kansas City, says the board needs to look at cutting costs during a tough budget time.

Walt Chappell ("chapel"), a board member from Wichita, says they should look for cuts in other areas. He says traveling to meet with constituents is an important service.

The board as a whole left more than 10 percent of the travel budget unspent last year, but three board members overspent their shares of the travel budget.
