KS Lawmakers to Tour University Campuses

KBOR - smallA group of Kansas lawmakers begins touring college campuses this week to talk budget issues. The visits come in the wake of nearly $50 million in budget cuts over two years passed by legislators. Lawmakers have said they want to talk to university officials about efficiency and how they spend money. Governor Sam Brownback, who opposed the funding cuts to universities, says he wants lawmakers to learn more about the role of higher education in Kansas and the impact of the cuts.

Brownback says he’ll push to reverse the budget cuts next year. The two-week tour starts tomorrow (TUE). Lawmakers will visit all the state's public universities, a technical institute and a community college.
