2010 Senate Bill 572: Propose state budget for 2011
Introduced by Sen. Jay Emler (R) on March 10, 2010
In his role as a committee chair, to no longer distribute a printed and clothbound edition of the Senate and House Journals at the conclusion of each legislative session to each member of the Kansas Legislature. In addition, the bill reduces the number of complete sets of the Kansas Statutes Annotated that each legislator receives from two to one, and the legislator will receive their one set of Statute books when they begin their first legislative term, rather than each legislative session. NOTE: In April 2010 a House committee deleted this measure from the bill and inserted an unrelated proposal regarding the Kansas state budget.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Ways and Means Committee on March 11, 2010
Reported to the Senate on March 19, 2010
Recommending the bill be passed as amended by Senate Committee. The committee's amendment reduces the copies of legislative session Journals to legislative leadership, rather than each member of the legislaure. Another amendment permits the Secretary of State to distribute copies of the Kansas Statutes Annotated in sufficient quantities needed to conduct official business at the Revisor of Statutes office, the Legisaltive Research Department, the Division of Post Audit and the Division of Administrative Services.
Amendment offered by Sen. Marci Francisco (D) on March 24, 2010
To allow for distribution of replacement volumes of Kansas Statutes Annotated in the same manner as the full sets.
The amendment passed by voice vote in the Senate on March 24, 2010
To no longer distribute a printed and clothbound edition of the Senate and House Journals at the conclusion of each legislative session to each member of the Kansas Legislature; to reduce the number of complete sets of the Kansas Statutes Annotated that each legislator receives from two to one, and the legislator will receive their one set of Statute books when they begin their first legislative term, rather than each legislative session; to reduce the copies distributed of legislative session Journals to legislative leadership, rather than each member of the legislaure; and, to permit the Secretary of State to distribute copies of the Kansas Statutes Annotated in sufficient quantities needed to conduct official business at the Revisor of Statutes office, the Legisaltive Research Department, the Division of Post Audit and the Division of Administrative Services .
Received in the House on March 29, 2010
Referred to the House Appropriations Committee on March 30, 2010
Reported in the House on April 28, 2010
Recommending passage of a substitute bill, replacing the previous version with an unrelated one that would use this as a legislative "vehicle" to propose the state budget for fiscal year 2011. The bill would authorize fiscal year 2011 spending from all funds of all state agencies in the amount of $13.4 billion and, of that total, spending from the state general fund (representing that part of the budget paid with Kansas-imposed taxes) of $5.4 billion. The current 2010 fiscal year's spending is projected at $14.4 billion from all funds and $5.4 billion from the state general fund.
Referred to the House Appropriations Committee on April 29, 2010
Reported in the House on April 29, 2010
Recommending the bill be passed as further amended. House committee's latest changes would additionally: reduce spending for pension contributions for K-12 employees by $12.8 million to reflect lower cost estimates for fiscal year 2011; increase spending for Regents universities by $1.6 million; increase spending for fee fund transfers by $12.6 million; and, reduce by $14 million the estimated state savings from hiring a private financial firm to reduce waste and fraud in state Medicaid payments. Overall, this budget plan would now authorize $5.405 billion in FY2011 from the State General Fund, leaving a projected ending balance that year of $91 million.

Motion by Rep. Clay Aurand (R) on May 6, 2010
To increase state funding for local K-12 school districts by $24 million in order to cover the expense of a separate school finance proposal. Currently, the state pays most of the K-12 employee pension contributions of each USD, but if each USD is allowed to begin counting that state aid as their own local general fund expenditure, the accounting change would begin a chain of consequences that would cost the state an additional $24 million. If USD general fund budgets become larger by including pension costs, then USD Local Option Budgets (LOBs) could become larger, therefore state matching funds that subsidize the LOBs would need to rise by $24 million.
