Kansas Lawmakers Wrestle with Funding Options


    A joint Kansas legislative committee is meeting this week  to consider the potential problems caused by diverting hundreds of millions of dollars to public schools from other parts of the budget.
    The meeting Monday and Tuesday is to continue gathering information as lawmakers work on a response to a Kansas Supreme Court order in October to boost spending on public schools.
    Lawmakers earlier this year phased in a $293 million increase education funding over two years to make it $4.3 billion annually. The court said that still wasn't constitutionally adequate.
