Kansas Senators Preparing to Work on School Funding Bill

While Kansas House members work on a school funding plan, state senators will soon take a crack at school spending. Republican Molly Baumgardner, who chairs the Senate Education Committee, says senators will first wait for the House to approve a school funding bill.
“And we will use that as the springboard to do some additional refinement and make sure that we have some additional checks and balances,” says Baumgardner.
The Kansas Supreme Court has given the Legislature until the end of June to come up with a new plan to adequately fund public schools.  

Baumgardner says one of the Senate priorities will be to make sure school districts serving low-population areas don’t lose money.
