TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers have created a committee to review school standards and funding. The K-12 Student Success Interim Study Committee created Wednesday will have 15 members from the House and Senate. The Kansas City Star reports that the committee will study education goals and "the best funding mechanism" for Kansas schools. House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, proposed the committee. It comes after the state replaced a per-pupil funding formula with block grants for the next two years while the state devises a new school financing formula. Lawmakers also approved an interim committee to study sales tax exemptions. During last session's budget debate, lawmakers disagreed over whether some current exemptions should be repealed.
