House Minority Leader Paul Davis, Lawrence:

“The budget we approved tonight fully restores the Yoder/O’Neal cuts to public schools, services for the disabled and public safety institutions. Maintaining these investments will keep Kansas on the road to economic recovery.  I am extremely proud of the strong bipartisan coalition that put this package together, despite the political risks involved.”

Rep. Bill Feuerborn, Garnett, Ranking Democrat on House Appropriations Committee:

“Our budget cuts over $200 million beyond the Governor’s recommendations- it is a fiscally responsible bill.  We only included what was absolutely necessary to keep communities safe, vulnerable citizens unharmed and public schools intact. Although it required difficult decisions, legislators who voted for this budget can go home and tell their districts they did everything they could to protect the things we care about as a state.”
