Should the Kansas Supreme Court be able to order the Legislature to make appropriations?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 3, 2005
“No. It’s not really the place of the Supreme Court. I thought the Supreme Court is supposed to decide whether or not the laws the legislature makes are constitutional.”
“I think the Supreme Court is just trying to uphold the constitution and fund education. I don’t think they’ve overstepped their bounds at all.”
“No, I don’t. I think that should be up to the Legislature.”
“I think the court overstepped its bounds a little by setting a specific amount. I think there needs to be a balance of power, but the court shouldn’t be so specific.”
