Kansas legislative leaders will be visiting college campuses later this year. They'll tour facilities to get a close-up look at what happens in the state’s public universities. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Marc Rhoades, a Republican from Newton, said this week that the trip will be more than just a tour. Rhoades says he’ll be asking questions and trying to better determine how campuses spend money. 



Higher ed funding was one of the most high-profile issues in the last legislative session, as university funding was cut by more than $40 million over two years. Republican Governor Sam Brownback has said he’ll be urging lawmakers to reverse higher education cuts in the next legislative session.



Legislative leaders will tour the state visiting university campuses later this year. It’s part of off-session studying of university funding, after high-profile disagreements over the issue last legislative session. KPR’s Stephen Koranda has more.
