TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ As one state fiscal year nears its
completion and the 2010 year begins next week, state agencies are
being advised to use their dollars wisely.

Lt. Gov. Troy Findley says it's not just because the money is
needed to continue providing a certain level of services to
Kansans. It's also because all eyes are on states to see that they
don't waste what critics already consider excessive spending.

Kansas will get $1.95 billion from the federal stimulus fund
through fiscal year 2011. Most is going to shore up spending for
education, highway and social service programs, with some providing
additional money for thousands unemployed by the recession.

However, continued weakness in the economy may mean further cuts
beyond what legislators approved this spring.
