Governor counting on growth to cover extra school aid

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Departing Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is counting on growth in state revenues to pay for his proposal to boost spending on public schools.

The budget proposals the term-limited Republican governor released Wednesday stoked an open revolt among GOP lawmakers.

They believe they’ll be forced to consider raising taxes or making deep cuts elsewhere after Brownback leaves office. Senate budget committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn called his proposals “irresponsible.”
