Another big budget reduction has been scheduled for the Kansas Department of Corrections...an agency that's already been targeted for budget cuts in recent years. Department spokesperson Jan Lunsford says that jobs are likely to be lost in this round of cutting.
One of three deputy secretary positions that is currently vacant will not be filled. Lunsford says the exact number of reductions has yet to be determined, as officials weigh how the cuts could affect public safety. Lunsford says that contrary to cuts in previous years, no operating correctional facilities are currently slated to be shut down.
