Representative: Freeze Bill Could Jeopardize Fed Funding

A budget-cutting bill received its first airing in the Kansas Legislature yesterday (TUE). Governor Sam Brownback's proposed "freeze" bill is being heard by Senate and House committees this week. It actually goes beyond locking in current spending and cuts some programs. That idea is not sitting well with Democratic Representative Bill Feuerborn (FIRE-born) of Garnett. He says cuts in state special education funding could jeopardize federal money that the state receives.

Brownback administration officials say the currently-proposed spending cuts are important for keeping the state's bank account balance up in the future.
