Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback wants lawmakers to extend a temporary sales tax hike as a way to fund the state's universities.
The governor says cuts to higher education would be a momentum-killer at a time when he thinks a lot of positive things are happening in Kansas.
Gov. Sam Brownback met with leaders at Wichita State University Monday to solicit support for his funding proposal that would help maintain state dollars for higher education.
The University of Kansas is asking the state for millions of dollars to help construct a $75 million medical building at its Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan.
