25 years ago: Regents discuss open-meetings law

December 22, 2009


The board of regents formally approved a $978,000 plan for a statewide ecucation research and service program. The center was to be based at KU. Gov. John Carlin was to include the measure in his 1985 legislative budget request.

The Kansas Board of Regents had a detailed discussion of the Kansas Open Meeetings Law and officials stressed the need for recognition of the limitations when scheduling and conducting meetings. Several complaints had been registered about “secret” meetings by the board.

The Federal Reserve Board once again lowered a key lending rate, to 8 percent, but analysts doubted any subsequent drops would be as great as those of a month earlier when the rate was dropped to 9 percent.

Proposed federal budget cuts for 1985 would deny guaranteed student loans and certain education grants to any family with an income of more than $30,000, education officials said.
