TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Senate Judiciary Committee's chairman is suggesting that lawmakers divert $25 million in highway funds to aid to poor school districts as part of a plan to comply with a recent state Supreme Court order. Republican Senator Jeff King of Independence proposed Friday that lawmakers increase the state's aid to public schools by $38 million for 2016-17 to help poor districts. King said lawmakers could divert $25 million set aside for an upgrade of U.S. 69 in southeast Kansas to school aid. Brownback's administration previously delayed the upgrade but announced recently it would go forward. The Supreme Court ruled last month that the state's education funding system remains unfair to poor school districts and warned schools could remain closed after June 30 without further fixes.
