TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is proposing a tight state budget that spends slightly less of the state’s tax dollars than the current budget.
Brownback’s administration outlined his spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1 in a Thursday briefing for the House Appropriations Committee.
The budget plan calls for spending a little less than $6.1 billion in general state revenues on government programs, compared to a little more than $6.1 billion under the current budget. The difference is a little less than 1 percent.
The overall budget, including spending financed with federal funds, would be $14.1 billion during the next fiscal year. That’s about 1.7 percent higher than the all-funds total of $13.9 billion in the current budget.
