TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Members of the state Senate Ways and Means Committee didn't get a chance to see Barack Obama become the nation's first black president.

Chairman Jay Emler said Tuesday the committee was busy trying to rework Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' proposals for closing a state budget deficit estimated at $200 million.

Emler said Obama would have become the 44th president whether or not committee members took time to watch the swearing-in.

The panel's work has been stalled by disagreement on how much to cut from state aid to public schools in the budget year that ends June 30.
