Kansas Lawmakers Leave Topeka Without Passing a Budget

Kansas lawmakers have left Topeka for a nearly month-long break without passing a budget. Senate and House negotiators hammered out a compromise, but that bill hasn't received a final vote.

The top budget writer in the Kansas House, Republican Representative Ron Ryckman, told lawmakers this will give them time to consider the plan.

“Take some time off,  go back to our constituents and have a good look at what the budget looks like. Go back to your coffees and town halls and get input,” says Ryckman.

Lawmakers also are waiting to see new state tax collection estimates before trying to finalize the budget.
