2015 Legislative update
2015 Legislature Convenes in Topeka:
The 2015 Kansas Legislature opened for business Monday, Jan. 12. The overriding issue this year is the State budget. With a $270 million shortfall in the current fiscal year and nearly $650 million projected in fiscal year 2016, the governor and legislators will be eyeing every agency budget to pick up savings.
As Kansas' law does not allow for a negative balance or deficit spending, the shortfall means significant cuts are ahead for some areas of State government. The governor is proposing some revenue enhancements, as well, that combined could add up to as much as $211 million in fiscal year 2016.
