TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)--Governor Brownback's administration is asking for about $2 million for Larned State Hospital.

The money will go to alleviate staffing problems at the facility for the mentally ill which is in danger of losing its federal certification.

The Lawrence Journal World reports the administration is seeking $993 thousand dollars to hire 23 direct care staff and an additional $940 thousand dollars to increase pay for nurses.

If the hospital does not get its certification, it could cost the state $14.5 million dollars a year.
