VALLEY FALLS, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Board of Regents gave preliminary approval to a $38.6 million budget for specific projects.
However, the Regents on Thursday rejected a request for $23.8 million to increase funding for post-secondary school to cover inflation.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the board will finalize the recommendations in September and forward it to Gov. Sam Brownback to consider while he devises a budget to present to the Legislature.
The list included top priorities from each of the state's post-secondary schools, including $10 million to build a technical institute in Dodge City as part of a proposed merger with Fort Hays, $5 million for ongoing funding of a drug and discovery institute at the University of Kansas, and $5 million to renovate and expand Seaton Hall at Kansas State University.
