Legislative update

By Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature started week three of the 2017 Legislative Veto Session. Items to be addressed in the veto session will be the budget for fiscal years 2018 and 2019; revenue package to fund state government expenditures; and a new K-12 school finance formula.

Gov. Sam Brownback signed Senate Bill 205 on May 10. This legislation exempts from the working-after-retirement earnings cap those retirees who are reemployed by the Board of Regents and covered by the Regents Retirement Plan which is not administered by KPERS. It will become effective July 1.

Sunday, May 14, marked the 90th day of the Legislative Session. They hope to adjourn by May 24, the 100th day.

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 a Kansas Legislative Review Session from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, May 19, in the K-State Student Union's Big 12 Room. Additional sessions will be added during the veto session. Dates and locations will be posted online. These sessions are open to the public and feel free to bring a brownbag lunch.
