Brownback to Cut Pensions, Roads to Close Kansas Budget Deficit

Updated on

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback says he must take “corrective action” to close a projected $280 million budget hole created by his income-tax cuts and plans to reduce spending on pensions and highways.

Brownback, a Republican who won re-election to a second term last month, said in a budget memo this week that revenue is “likely to be insufficient to cover appropriations” in the last six months of the current fiscal year, which ends in June.
