Kansas Governor Sets Special Session Date
Gov. Sam Brownback has set the date for the Legislature to return for a special session.
Lawmakers will return on June 23, 2016, giving them one week to pass new school funding legislation. The state Supreme Court deemed the current system unconstitutional and, according to the ruling, the Legislature needs to redistribute state funding before June 30.
The changes will likely involve shifting $38 million, but Brownback has yet to endorse a particular plan.
