Kansas board calls for restored higher education funding

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Board of Regents is urging the governor and lawmakers to restore higher education funding.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the regents took the stance Wednesday unanimously and without comment. For fiscal years 2018 and 2019, their proposal calls for reinstating about $30 million per year sliced from the fiscal 2017 budget.  The cuts announced in May represented a 4 percent higher education reduction. The University of Kansas and KU Medical Center lost about $10.7 million, and Kansas State University’s campuses lost about $7 million.  Regents chairwoman Zoe Newton says the board is “not unaware of the straits that we are in as a state.” But she says the board feels it needs to “put out there what it is that we feel we need as a system.”
