TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The University of Kansas is asking the state for millions of dollars to help construct a $75 million medical building at its Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Steve Stites, a medical center official, plans to meet with Gov. Sam Brownback to discuss the proposed education and training facility.

The university is asking the state to provide $30 million in bonds over 10 years. It also wants the state to release $26 million of a federal refund related to payroll taxes.

The university's budget request also includes nearly $3 million for improvements at the School of Medicine's Wichita campus.

Last month, Brownback said a general increase in funding for higher education is unlikely but additional dollars for specific projects at the universities could be available.
