Oral Arguments in School Funding Case Set for May 10

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments on whether a new education funding law is constitutional for early May 10. The court on Friday also ordered attorneys to file all briefs in the case by April 28. Governor Sam Brownback signed a school funding bill Wednesday that redistributes $83 million in aid for the state's 286 school districts for the next school year. That law was in response to an earlier Supreme Court ruling that Kansas's education funding was unfair to poorer districts. Justices threatened to close state schools if lawmakers didn't address the problem by June 30. The justices want attorneys to address whether the new law satisfies the earlier ruling, and what remedial action should be ordered if the court finds the new law is unconstitutional.
