The full Kansas House could debate a budget bill this week, which includes a provision aimed at punishing the University of Kansas. As KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports, some lawmakers are unhappy with how KU funded a $300 million building project.
KU formed a public-private partnership to issue bonds, and they did it in a way that didn’t require the approval of Kansas lawmakers. That angered some legislators, like Republican Rep. Marc Rhoades. He offered an amendment to the budget that would restrict how KU spends some of its money.
