Parkinson Vows to Veto Further Cuts

Kansas Governor Mark Parkinson drew a “budget deficit” line in the sand this weekend in an interview with Kansas City Television Station KMBC saying, “If they’re going to try to balance this budget with further cuts, they’re going to need 2/3’s of this Legislature to do it because I’ll veto that plan.”

Parkinson made it clear he would veto any budget that makes substantial cuts to education, public safety and programs for the elderly or disabled.

Governor Parkinson said he hoped lawmakers will be able to finish their work before the end of the regular 90-day session. He also said he will bring lawmakers back until they pass a responsible plan.
