The Kansas Board of Regents wants an in-depth study of a new law that allows more concealed weapons into public buildings.
The regents decided to pursue the study during their annual retreat Tuesday.
The law took effect July 1.
It allows Kansans with concealed carry permits to carry weapons on public college campuses. The regents have requested an immediate six-month exemption for universities, and could later seek an extension through 2017.
The Kansas Board of Regents will vote Thursday on a budget request that includes about $45 million in additional funding for improvements and raises for employees.
The increases are targeted at a variety of areas. Nearly $3 million would go to improve the University of Kansas Medical Center and $5 million to strengthen the College of Architecture at Kansas State University.
The proposal also includes more than $7 million for employee pay raises. That would be a 1 percent raise for all employees of the state universities.
