Brownback meeting college students, administrators

School Funding Fight

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Gov. Sam Brownback is going on the road to meet with Kansas college students and administrators about recent decisions on funding for higher education.

The governor scheduled visits Monday at Pittsburg, Emporia and Wichita state universities, concluding at Kansas State in Manhattan. He was being joined by Kenny Wilk, a member of the Kansas Board of Regents.

The purpose of the tour is to discuss action by legislators to fund additional investments in research and technology across the regents system.

Funding was included in a bill legislators approved April 5 that also increased state aid to public school districts.
