Legislative update

By Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature is starting week five 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.

The Legislature passed the 100th day on May 24. The House has passed a new school finance formula and the Senate is writing their own version of a school finance formula.

Please see the weekly updates every Tuesday in K-State Today through the Final Adjournment of the 2017 Kansas Legislature.

The Office of Governmental Relations will host Kansas Legislative Review Sessions throughout the 2017 Legislative session. 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.
