Senate Considers Creating KS Disaster Fund


KS Adj GenA Kansas Senate committee is considering legislation that would create a state disaster fund. When the federal government provides disaster assistance, the state has to pay a share of the cost. Adjutant General Lee Tafanelli says a standing fund would make paying that share easier.

The state would pay more than $10 million into the fund each year. The fund could hold up to $40 million. That would mean in many cases, lawmakers wouldn’t have to scramble to find money to pay for the state’s share of disaster costs. The full Senate could debate the bill next week.
