House Acts on Governor’s Spending Cuts

The Kansas House of Representatives this week passed an amended series of state spending cuts proposed by Governor Sam Brownback.

The plan calls for a 2% reduction in base state aid to schools and 7.5% pay cuts for legislators, some government executives, and some university employees.

The budget proposal which now goes to the Senate, provides for cutting taxpayer-provided state general fund spending by about $38-million to $5.73-billion for the current fiscal year that ends June 30th.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
