Conference Committee Starts Work on Budget

A group of lawmakers today (TUE) started negotiations to resolve the differences between Kansas House and Senate budget proposals. Both chambers' plans include cuts to education and other services. But the House plan makes deeper cuts, with the goal of leaving the state with a larger ending balance at the end of next fiscal year. House Appropriations Committee Chair Marc Rhoades, a Newton Republican, says there could be some tough work ahead.

Negotiators will be working with the goal of producing a compromise by next week. That’s when the full House and Senate return to the Statehouse, to wrap up work on the budget.
