Statehouse Flickr_J._Stephen_Conn

The Kansas House is preparing to vote on a proposed state budget for each of the next two years, but its leaders are not confident the plan can pass.  The measure set for a vote today (SAT) emerged from negotiations with the Senate on spending issues for the two fiscal years beginning in July.  The bill calls for a budget of $14.5 billion for the next fiscal year, an overall increase of 1.5 percent.  Higher education spending is a key issue.  The bill would cut funding for state universities by 1.5 percent in each of the next two fiscal years.
