House Cuts Short Debate on Budget Cuts

Kansas House leaders have cut short debate on a bill that would trim spending out of the current state budget. Lawmakers sent the measure back to the Appropriations Committee for more discussion. Representative Eber (EE-burr) Phelps, a Hays Democrat, supported the move. The measure started as a two page bill, but more than 30 pages of amendments were added. Phelps believes lawmakers didn’t have enough time to study all the changes.

Last week, Governor Sam Brownback cut 56 million dollars to balance the budget that ends June 30th. Lawmakers are looking to slice about 35 million dollars more in state spending.
