KS Lawmakers Hope to Take Part in School Mediation

Statehouse Flickr photo by Jimmy Emerson(FlickrPhoto by Jimmy Emerson)Top Democrats in the Kansas Legislature say lawmakers should have a hand in mediation talks over school funding. They say they'll file a motion making that argument this week. The Kansas Supreme Court ordered mediation between the parties, a move requested by Governor Sam Brownback. Democrats say they’ll request the State Finance Council be included in the process. The council includes both Democrats and Republicans. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, of Lawrence, says lawmakers have the power to appropriate money, so... they should have a seat at the table.

A district court recently said the state needs to increase education funding. That order has been put on hold until the state Supreme Court takes up the case.
