Legislative update

Submitted by Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature adjourned the 2017 regular session and will return for the veto session on May 1. Legislative leadership has indicated the remaining items to be addressed in the veto session will be the budget for fiscal years 2018 and 2019; revenue package to fund state government; and K-12 school finance formula.

Action the legislature took prior to the first adjournment related to K-State:

The House and Senate passed House Bill 2052, the appropriations bill to balance the fiscal year 2017 budget. There were no additional budget cuts to K-State and higher education for fiscal year 2017 in the bill. The bill was signed by the Gov. Sam Brownback on April 18.

On April 20, the Kansas Consensus Revenue Estimating Team met and revised the revenue estimates for the State General Fund. View the estimates on the Kansas Legislative Research Department PDF memo

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. April 28 in 21 Bluemont Hall. 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.
