Kansas Senate Approves $14B Budget
The Kansas Senate has given final approval to a $14 billion budget for the next fiscal year.
Thursday's 24-16 vote sends the measure to the House, which approved its own budget bill Wednesday. Negotiators from the two chambers are expected to begin meeting next week to work out a final version.
