Kansas Liberty reports this about the Kansas budget: “Kansas is headed for a financial disaster, but nobody’s sure yet exactly what to do about it.”
One of the things the passage of the school bond issue in Wichita has done is to place an additional burden on the Kansas budget. Some bond issue supporters spoke as though there was an account in Topeka with money sitting idly, waiting for us in Wichita to claim it. That is one of the many false claims bond supporters made. There is no such fund. The money that Kansas will have to pay will be found either in the form of higher taxes or reduced spending. Ironically, education spending is mentioned as an area for spending cuts.
