TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas legislators are on a month long break, having left behind a budget still considered a work in progress and more possible changes to the state tax code.
Lawmakers adjourned late Friday having approved several issues after more than a week of negotiations. But many of the spending cuts favored by majority Republicans remain in play.
One area is higher education. The Senate is recommending a 4 percent cut for state universities and community colleges. The House favors a 2 percent cut.
The Legislature returns to work May 8. Republican leaders say the budget picture will come into focus before then, with the release of a new estimate of state revenue.
The revenue report also will help settle the debate on further cuts in Kansas income taxes.
