Kansas Legislative Panel on School Funding Will Meet December 4

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A special Kansas legislative committee on public school funding is having its first meeting next month to start work on a response to a state Supreme Court order to boost funding.  The committee is scheduled to convene December 4 at the Statehouse.  The Supreme Court ruled in October that state aid to public schools remains constitutionally inadequate even with a new law phasing in a $293 million increase over two years to make it $4.3 billion annually. The court directed lawmakers to enact a new law before July.  The committee's chairman is Republican Rep. Blaine Finch of Ottawa. He also is the House Judiciary Committee's chairman.  The panel's 11 members include the Senate majority and minority leaders and the chairs of the House and Senate budget committees.
