Budget Estimates Force Legislature to Look for Cuts

When the Kansas Legislature returns for its wrap-up session next week, lawmakers will need to consider even more budget cuts. Senator Jean Schodorf of Wichita says that state revenue projections have come in lower than expected.

That means 10 million dollars more in cuts for this year, and 20 million for next year. Despite the bad state of this current revenue picture, Schodorf says she was actually expecting something worse. She thought projections would show the state needed to reduce its expenditures by around 50 million dollars for the next two budget cycles.
