A Kansas House committee has voted to reverse some of the funding cuts made to colleges and universities last year.
The proposal would divert money next fiscal year to help restore part of the cuts to the University of Kansas and Kansas State University. Under a budget provision last year, KU and K-State took a bigger hit than other schools.
Republican Rep. Troy Waymaster proposed restoring the funding.
“It really hurt KU and K-State. We needed to balance that out and just make it fairer to all the regents schools across the board,” Waymaster says.
