House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs issued the following statement in response to the Sam Brownback's latest education cuts:

"Gov. Brownback's statement today is so out of touch with reality that it is almost offensive. The truth is that our classrooms are at 1992-levels of funding and getting worse because the Governor has never made education a priority. College tuition has also increased dramatically every year he's been in office as a direct result of Gov. Brownback's cuts to our universities, which he is making even worse with these cuts today. The Governor says that the state's dismal funding of these critical investments is 'unsustainable.' The only 'unsustainable' thing in Kansas government right now is Gov. Brownback's failed economic experiment and the havoc it is wreaking on Kansas kids and the Kansas economy."
