TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas House panel has finished writing a proposed $14 billion state budget for the fiscal year that starts in July.
The House Appropriations Committee made its final changes to the plan Tuesday. The measure also contains supplemental funding sought by Gov. Sam Brownback for the current budget year, including $24.6 million for public schools.
Committee chairman Marc Rhoades said the House will probably debate the bill next week, although the chamber could take it up later this week.
The Senate expects to begin debating its version of the budget starting Wednesday.
