TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and legislative leaders are considering whether to grant permission for the state to issue bonds to help finance a visitor center at the Statehouse.
The proposal on their agenda Monday is part of a larger plan to help finish a Statehouse renovation that has lasted 12 years and cost $320 million.
State budget director Steve Anderson outlined the proposal last week. It also calls for tapping $7 million in transportation funds for work on the Statehouse grounds.
Anderson said in a memo that an additional $5 million in savings from other parts of the renovation could be dedicated to the visitor center and grounds, for a total of $17.4 million.
