Kansas views on budget shortfall, election, teacher licensing, Wefald Hall

Budget shortfall – If the state meets its revenue projections through the end of the current fiscal year, which runs through June 30, 2015, it will end the year with about $25 million in the bank, based on projected expenditures. Meeting the revenue projections is not impossible, but it appears unlikely at this point. And by November, the state and political candidates should have a good idea whether the 2015 Legislature will have to take action on a budget remedy. Candidates should let the voters know before Election Day what they plan to do if it appears the budget is going to need some remedial action.
