Kansas Regents denounce Senate budget proposal -Peter Hancock, LJWorld

Kansas Board of Regents members and other higher education officials expressed outrage Wednesday at a higher education budget proposal now before the Senate Ways and Means Committee that shifts millions of dollars in funding between two of Kansas University's campuses and makes direct cuts to Kansas State University. That plan, which was approved last week by the panel's education subcommittee, shifts $9.4 million over two years from Kansas University's Lawrence campus to the KU Medical Center campus in Wichita to increase the number of doctors who can take all four years of medical school there. It also cuts $2.1 million from Kansas State's budget in the fiscal year beginning July 1.
