Kansas is facing a budget deficit next fiscal year and lawmakers will soon begin working to find a way to fill the hole. Republican Governor Sam Brownback has already proposed spending cuts to balance the budget in the current fiscal year. The solution includes money diverted from the state highway fund and the public pension plan, known as KPERS.

When lawmakers return to Topeka to start the 2015 session, a Kansas City, Kansas, legislator will be taking the helm of the Democratic caucus in the House of Representatives. Democrats in that chamber recently selected Tom Burroughs to replace outgoing minority leader Paul Davis, who stepped down to run for governor.

KPR’s Stephen Koranda sat down with Burroughs to discuss the upcoming legislative session and the spending cuts proposed by Governor Brownback.
