The Brownback administration disclosed specifics last week on how much it transferred from other funds to help cover the state’s budget shortfall at the end of the fiscal year June 30. It transferred $2.9 million from the Department of Corrections, $20 million from the state highway fund, and $680,500 from the Kansas Reading Success program, which uses money from the Children’s Initiatives Fund, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. The administration also delayed $260 million in school district payments that were due in June ($75 million more than expected). – Phillip Brownlee
