Panel Reverses Decision on Preservation of KDOT Funding

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A House panel reversed a decision made last week and decided to fully restore Governor Sam Brownback's request to use millions of dollars from the Kansas Department of Transportation to fill gaps in other state spending. The governor wants to take $724 million from transportation projects. Last week, the House Transportation Budget Committee voted to reduce that amount by $280 million, allowing about $444 million to be transferred during fiscal years 2016 and 2017. On Monday, during a quick meeting not held in a committee room, the panel restored the $280 million fund transfer. Chairman Representative J.R. Claeys, of Salina, said more study is needed to determine the impact of removing fund sweeps on the budget. He said the quick meeting was necessary because he had to attend another meeting.
