Legislative Update

By Sue Peterson

Both houses were not in session last week. The Legislature returned to the State Capitol on March 6. The bills impacting higher education and Kansas State University can be found on the Governmental Relations website.

This week the Senate Ways and Means Committee will discuss the budget for Kansas State University and all higher education. The Ways and Means Higher Education Subcommittee will make recommendations on higher education budgets on March 6 and 7. The subcommittee chair will present the recommendations to the Senate Ways and Means Committee on Thursday, March 9.

The House Federal and State Affairs Committee will hold a hearing on House Bill 2220. This legislation prohibits the Kansas Board of Regents from implementing policies related to weapons on campuses.

Please see the weekly updates every Tuesday in K-State Today through the Final Adjournment of the 2017 Kansas Legislature. In addition, the Office of Governmental Relations will host Kansas Legislative Review Sessions March 17 and March 31 in Hale Library's Hemisphere Room and April 14 in 21 Bluemont Hall. These sessions are open to the public and feel free to bring a brownbag lunch.
