Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has released a wide-ranging plan for fixing the state’s budget shortfall. His proposal would take money from the highway fund, raise some taxes and overhaul the funding system for children’s programs. It would also take longer to pay off a shortfall in the state employee pension plan. KPR’s Stephen Koranda spoke with Jim McLean, of the Kansas News Service, about the budget plan and how lawmakers are reacting. Koranda says, the governor’s staff made the pitch to lawmakers Wednesday.
