Kansas Senate Rejects Spending Cuts To Balance Budget

Kansas legislators are rejecting the premise of cutting spending immediately to get the state through June without a budget deficit until it can collect new revenue from increased taxes.

Late Thursday the Kansas Senate approve a bill to balance the current budget after voting 33-7 against a proposal from its top leader, President Susan Wagle, to reduce spending by $105 million before June 30.

Senators also overwhelmingly rejected two proposals for smaller, across-the-board cuts as well.
