House Panel Finishes 2012 Kansas Budget Blueprint

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A House budget committee has endorsed at
2012 Kansas budget after weeks of deliberation, producing a bill
that would cut spending and leave the state with nearly $83 million
in the bank.
The committee on Tuesday votes 12-10 to send the bill to the
full House for debate, likely sometime next week at the earliest.
The budget calls for spending $6 billion in state revenues and
$13.8 billion from all funding sources. It also eliminates some
2,000 vacant state employee positions. The budget makes $65.8
million more in cuts than sought by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.
A Senate committee finalized its budget on Monday, creating a
bill that saves the state a little more than $4 million for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 2012.
