TOPEKA | Gov. Sam Brownback and legislators are continuing to search for common ground on a proposal to trim the 2011 Kansas budget.
The Republican governor will meet with the media Friday to offer his solution to balance a budget that is as much as $60 million in the red.
Brownback has asked legislators to cut state spending for the fiscal year ending June 30. He wanted a bill that would give Kansas $35 million in reserves by the end of January.
On Thursday, legislative negotiators broke off talks after the sides were unable to resolve their differences.
The House negotiators have a plan that produces $35 million in savings, while senators have a smaller package worth about $20 million.
