Legislative update

Submitted by Sue Peterson

This week begins the ninth week of the 13 weeks of the regular Kansas Legislative Session.

The Senate Ways and Means Higher Education Subcommittee heard testimony from the Kansas Board of Regents on the governor's budget recommendations for higher education on March 5. The recommendations contained no changes for K-State's budget from the appropriations bill, which was passed in the 2017 Kansas Legislative session. Bills impacting higher education and K-State can be found on the governmental relations website.

The Kansas Legislative Session's first adjournment will be Friday, April 6. The veto session will convene on Thursday, April 26. The 90th Day is Friday, May 4.

Please see the weekly updates every Tuesday in K-State Today through the 90th day or final adjournment.

The Office of Governmental Relations will host Kansas Legislative Review Sessions from noon to 1 p.m. March 16 in Hale Library's Hemisphere Room and March 30 in the K-State Student Union's Bluemont Room. These sessions are open to all faculty, staff and students; feel free to bring a brown-bag lunch.
