Report Says State Could Cut Back Kan-ed Program to Save Cash

A report presented to Kansas lawmakers today (THUR) says the state could eliminate some tax-supported internet services to save cash. The Kan-ed program provides internet and video to around 450 facilities, including schools, libraries and hospitals. Cort Buffington is with the organization that oversees Kan-ed. He says around 25 percent of the services are underutilized. But, he adds, those services could still be crucial for the users.

The report says around half the sites using Kan-ed could be switched to private internet service as a way to save money. A legislative committee is looking for ways to streamline the program and cut costs.
