Members of the House and Senate budget committees say it's unlikely that lawmakers will increase the overall budget by the full $129 million dollars needed to cover deficiencies in aid to poor school districts.
Last week, The Kansas Supreme Court ruled that past reductions in such aid created unconstitutional gaps in funding between poor districts and wealthier ones.
The court ordered lawmakers to fix the problems by July 1st.
State lawmakers are resuming their talks about education funding.
A Kansas Supreme Court ruling last week said the state has created inequalities between schools districts and that lawmakers violated the Kansas Constitution by cutting funds that help equalize school district budgets.
