Kansas House Prepares to Vote on Budget-Balancing Plan

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas House is preparing to vote on a plan for eliminating a projected deficit of nearly $200 million in the state's next budget.  The plan before the chamber today (WED) makes dozens of changes in the state's $16.1 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1. It contains most of Republican Governor Sam Brownback's proposals to help close the gap by juggling funds and capturing unanticipated savings.  The final version was drafted by three House and three Senate negotiators appointed to reconcile differences between the two chambers.  The plan includes a House proposal for a 2.5 percent pay raise for uniformed corrections officers at state prisons.  If the House approves the plan as expected, the Senate would vote on it to determine whether it goes to Brownback.
