This morning, the Senate Ways and Means Committee adopted recommendations from the Education Budget Subcommittee on the KBOR budget. While we are still very early in the process and much can happen between now and the 90th day, the good news is that the recommendations on the KBOR budget include Governor’s proposed PSU budget. Under Governor Brownback’s budget proposal, endorsed by the full SWAM Committee, PSU funding would remain level with a special annual enhancement of $1 million for development and implementation of the new polymer chemistry degree program.
Consideration of the KBOR budget by the House will begins this week. President Scott will testify before the House Education Budget Subcommittee this Wednesday, February 20th.
