KS Law Aims to Increase Number of Engineering Grads

Kansas needs more engineers and a new law is designed to make that happen. Governor Sam Brownback has signed a measure that will allocate $10.5 million a year to engineering programs at the University of Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State. Steve Morris, a Hugoton Republican, is president of the Kansas Senate.

Republican Senator Carolyn McGinn, of Sedgwick, says this legislation will help address that shortage.

Lawmakers hope the new legislation will increase the number of engineering graduates by 60 percent.
