Efficiency consultants outline $2 billion in savings, efficiencies over five years; recommendations likely to be controversial

Probably because we have 6 more months in this fiscal year. And based on how far short previous month projections have been, we'll need a helluva lot more than $14M by the time June gets here.

Spend down cash reserves?? Yeah, because it's worked so well for the State to spend down their budget to zero.

Guess what? Schools don't have the Bank of KDOT to transfer money around when they run out. Leave school's cash reserves alone.

You're not going to see a teacher shortage in Lawrence, it's a bigger city, near Kansas City, and will always have people wanting to work there. Look around the state though, rural areas have teacher shortages, and inner city Kansas City has shortages, as well as Wichita.

Lawmakers in favor of Medicaid removed from Kansas House health committee

Says a lot about the character of this "man." What a coward he is. A real leader is someone who can and will work with all people, regardless of beliefs, and work to find the best solution. A coward is someone who surrounds themselves with like minded thinkers and ignores the rest of the world.
