Kansas Legislature sends school finance bill to governor after extending its session at the last minute

Topeka — Kansas lawmakers finally agreed early Sunday morning to pass a $522 million increase in annual K-12 school funding, phased in over five years.

By a vote of 21-19, the Senate voted around 12:20 a.m. to accept a school funding plan based largely on the one originally offered by the House, one that is nearly twice as large as the Senate’s original plan.
