Governor, Lawmakers Give 3 Kansas School Districts Extra Funds

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and legislative leaders have approved a total of nearly $302,000 in extra funding for three public school districts.  Brownback and eight top lawmakers met Monday as the State Finance Council to review requests under a new school funding law.  Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce said the council approved $134,000 for the Garden City district to cover a decline in tax revenues after a drop in property values.  The council provided $139,000 to the Mulvane district south of Wichita for the same reason.  The council also approved $28,000 in additional funding for the Twin Valley school district in Ottawa County. Bruce said the money would cover unexpected repairs.  Under the law that took effect last month, districts apply for the extra funds, and the Financial Council decides.
