TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas Senate committee is extending its discussion of Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to rewrite the formula for distributing state aid to school districts.
Friday is the last day in this year’s legislative session for bills in certain committees to clear their chamber of origin.
Sen. Jean Schodorf says the Education Committee won’t be able to finish its work on the school finance bill this week, and will request an exception to allow for more debate.
Schodorf, a Wichita Republican, says Brownback’s plan is complex and has generated a lot of discussion. She says the bill isn’t dead, but needs further review.
Brownback is proposing to give school districts more authority to raise revenue and spend the dollars with more flexibility.
