Attorney General Derek Schmidt To Advise House Appropriations Committee On School Funding

Members of a Kansas House Appropriations Committee will get advice from the attorney general on how lawmakers should respond to the state Supreme Court's ruling on school funding.

The court ruled on March 7th that past cuts in state aid to poor school districts created unconstitutional gaps in funding between them and wealthier districts.

The court ordered lawmakers to fix the problem by July 1st.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt is scheduled to brief the House Appropriations Committee today, along with a member of the reviser of statutes' office.
