Kansas Lawmakers Face Tough Session

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

At an informational meeting Thursday afternoon, Kansas Legislators learned the state's budget is in the red almost $200 million dollars. Lawmakers say they will have to make cuts across the board to balance the budget.

Those cuts may include educational cuts. Wichita Superintendent Martin Libhart says that will hurt the kids and the community.

Money from the state goes to hire more teachers and for programs that have improved students test scores.

The session begins Monday. The budget has to be balanced before the session wraps up in the Spring.
