Education officials have painted a grim picture of what could happen if Kansas lawmakers approve budget cuts for the state's colleges and universities. The comments came yesterday (WED), during a meeting of the Board of Regents in Topeka. As KPR's Stephen Koranda tells us, the cuts could mean shuttering some medical school programs at the University of Kansas.

House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Republican from Stilwell, issued a statement after the meeting. He says House members are committed to higher education, but believe there’s room for savings in university budgets.
