Governor Pushing for Larger Ending Balance

As budget negotiations continue, Governor Sam Brownback is urging lawmakers to craft a bill that leaves the state with a healthy ending balance. That’s what Brownback told reporters today (FRI) during a news conference at the Statehouse. He says without the cushion, it could mean cuts have to be made partway through next fiscal year.

Brownback had initially proposed a 7 million dollar ending balance for the fiscal year starting July 1st. House members continued cutting beyond that and their bill would leave the state with around 50 million dollars. The Senate bill would leave the state with only a few million dollars, but would cut state services far less. Budget talks will continue next week.
