TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas House committee is returning to the Statehouse to resume work on the 2014 budget, taking up smaller funding issues related to bills already signed into law.

Legislators are on a month long break that ends May 8, but the House Appropriations Committee was scheduled to open two days of meetings Monday. The gathering follows a meeting last Thursday by the Senate Ways and Means Committee.

Negotiators from the House and Senate still must work out their differences in a $14 billion budget bill for the fiscal year that starts July 1.

The two chambers have taken different positions on how much to cut from higher education. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback has been touring the state urging lawmakers to spare higher education from any cuts in spending.
