Kansas Court Furloughs Cancelled

Some good news did come out of this year's Kansas legislative session. Lawmakers appropriated enough money that state courts will be able to stay open. Ron Keefover is spokesperson for the Office of Judicial Administration.

Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Lawton Nuss had previously ordered five furlough days in order to save the state's judicial system money. One took place on April 13th. After receiving a promise from the legislature to address the state courts' $1.4 million deficit, Nuss deferred the implementation of the furloughs. The legislature then followed through on its promise to cover the courts' financial shortfall, so Nuss cancelled the furloughs altogether.
