Sebelius Urges Compromise to Protect Schools
The following is a statement from Governor Kathleen Sebelius on the Kansas House's passage of House Sub for Sub for SB 23:
"I am pleased the House followed the Senate's lead and rejected the untargeted, across the board cuts to essential services and avoided the steeper cuts as recommended by the Committee.
"Unfortunately, the cuts the House did approve for education are deeper than what the Senate approved.
"I am hopeful the House and Senate will swiftly reach a reasonable compromise in conference committee, so we can move on to the work that must be done on the 2010 budget."
