Share/Save/Bookmark

TOPEKA, Kansas — Leaders of the Kansas Board of Regents are pleased with legislative approval of a higher education budget that partly restores salary cuts imposed last year.

The measure approved late Sunday contains money for the operating budgets of the six state universities, community colleges and technical schools.

Regents Chairman Fred Logan said Wednesday that legislators approved nearly all of Gov. Sam Brownback's recommendations for higher education, including granting $25 million in bonding authority for a new education building at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

The spending was included in a bill that aimed to address court-ordered funding for public school districts. The bill is awaiting Brownback's signature.
