TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Members of the Kansas Board of Regents plan to discuss budget issues and their policy of banning concealed guns on higher education campuses during a retreat next week.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the three-day gathering is to begin Tuesday at a bed and breakfast in Valley Falls, northeast of Topeka.

Regents President and Chief Executive Officer Andy Tompkins said the regents will help their staff develop budget proposals to be considered at the board's meeting in September.

The regents expect to meet Wednesday with Gov. Sam Brownback's chief of staff and budget director.

They're also planning to discuss a new state law aimed at ensuring that people with valid permits can carry concealed guns into public buildings. Public universities and colleges can exempt themselves through 2017.
