The House Budget Committee has completed its work on a $24 billion budget. The 13 budget bills must now clear the Rules Committee in order to go to the full House.
The proposed budget replaces a portion of the money taken from the Supplemental Aid to the Blind Program. An appropriations committee had recommended that $28 million program be eliminated and Chairman Ryan Silvey (R-Kansas City) took up that recommendation in his proposed budget. He proposed using that money to help replaces $106 million that was cut from higher education in the Governor’s budget proposal.
