Topeka Kansas House leaders have cut short debate on a bill that could provide additional savings in the current state budget.
Monday's action sent the measure back to committee for more discussion.
Last week, Gov. Sam Brownback cut $56.5 million from the budget for the fiscal year that ends June 30. Lawmakers are looking to slice about $35 million in state spending.
House leaders used a rare procedure Monday to send the measure back to committee. The move spared the chamber from having to debate all 52 individual items in the bill.
