State government in Kansas is undergoing a comprehensive study to see how tax dollars are spent. That’s what Kansas Budget Director Steve Anderson told the House Appropriations Committee today (MON). The goal of the program is to find the exact costs for government services to determine where money can be saved. Anderson gave the example of a boiler inspection performed by the Department of Labor.
The program is starting with the Department of Labor and Department of Agriculture. Anderson says they’re hoping to have more state agencies studying their costs by this summer.
