Kansas Governor Sam Brownback proposed big cuts to state government during his State of the State address last night (WED). He’s proposing cutting 2,000 unfilled state jobs, and eliminating entire state agencies.
Brownback hasn’t said which state agencies he’ll remove. The efforts are part of Brownback’s proposal to eliminate a state budget shortfall projected at more than 500 million dollars. He’s also pushing for tax cuts to help grow business investments in the state and a focus on growing jobs in the aviation and animal health fields.
