Labor groups, educational associations and other activists plan to rally against proposed budget cuts at the Capitol on Saturday afternoon.

The group represents a broad swath of interests that tend to support Democratic and moderate Republican positions.

Rally participants include the American Federation of Teachers-Kansas, Kansas Farmers Union, Kansas Equality Coalition, Working Kansas Alliance, Kansas National Education Association and Sunflower Community Action.

The rally starts at 3:30 p.m. on the south steps of the Capitol.

It comes just days before state lawmakers return to Topeka for their wrapup session, which begins May 8.

The Republican-dominated Legislature is still working on income tax-cutting proposals and a state spending plan that may include 2 to 4 percent cuts for higher education along with many other significant changes.
