House and Senate negotiators also preserved a state grant of $600,000 for Kansas public TV and radio stations.
The money is the same amount allotted in the current year, but down from the $3.8 million dollars the state provided as recently as 2008.
The funding bill for the upcoming fiscal year now goes to the full House and Senate.
The state provides about 1 percent of funding for public broadcasting stations in Kansas City and Lawrence.
KMUW receives a small portion of its budget from the state, about $35,000.
Supporters of public broadcasting are concerned this could be the year that state funding for public radio and broadcast stations ends in Kansas.
