The state’s Legislative Session is underway, as lawmakers returned to Topeka this week and Governor Sam Brownback delivered his State of the State speech on Tuesday.
Kansas continues to face significant budget challenges, and lawmakers will be facing difficult choices. With that in mind, KU will ask state legislators to consider two priorities in the months ahead: restoring $10.7 million in 2016 cuts to KU, and maintaining stable funding for the university.
The beginning of the session also serves as a good time for a reminder of our policies and procedures regarding interactions between KU and government officials. For more information, please see a message from Vice Chancellor Tim Caboni.
