A legislative update from the director of governmental relations

By Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature convenes for the second day of the special session on Friday, June 24. Both the Kansas House of Representatives and Kansas Senate will be debating bills to provide K-12 education funding.

You can find both bills, Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 2001 by clicking the links provided. In addition the Senate will consider two constitutional amendments, SCR 1602 and SCR 1603, regarding the Supreme Court's authority in the closure of K-12 schools. At this time the plans do not contain any changes to higher education funding as passed in the final appropriations bill and signed by the governor.
