Gov. Graves says he'll announce another round of budget cuts next week. He's trying to close a projected $310 million shortfall.
Graves won't say if the latest cuts will include reductions in education spending.
He cut spending in August by $41 million, after revenue collections fell short of expectations. Those cuts, with earlier tax increases approved by legislators, were designed to finish the 2003 budget year without running a deficit.
However, revenue estimates now show the need for more cuts, which Graves has been discussing with governor-elect Kathleen Sebelius.
Current estimates project that Kansas will have a budget shortfall of more than $1 billion through fiscal 2004, without cuts or tax increases.
