Legislative update

Submitted by Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature is starting week two 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.

Last week, the Kansas Senate passed Senate Bill 205. 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.

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 Big 12 Room of the K-State Student Union. 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.
