Senate Passes Budget Bill

The Kansas Senate has approved their version of a state budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1st. Yesterday’s (TUE) 36 to 3 vote sends the bill to the House, which will debate its own version of the 2012 budget later in the week. The Senate measure would reduce aid to schools by around 230 dollars per student. Carolyn McGinn, a Republican from Sedgwick, chairs the Senate Ways and Means Committee. She said senators did what they had to do to balance the state budget.

Senators voted to cut the pay of lawmakers and other state officials to help eliminate a 500 million dollar deficit. For more on the budget bill, tune in later this hour.
