Kan. GOP leader responds to court budget concerns

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A top Senate Republican is suggesting to a court-appointed budget panel that there are other options available to prevent cuts in operations of the Kansas judicial system.

Senate Vice President Jeff King sent a letter dated Friday to members of a newly appointed budget council that will look at ways to increase funding and improve efficiencies within the state court system.

King says in the letter that not everything that has been said about the court budget is accurate.

King says there have been previous recommendations for efficiencies that haven’t been considered by legislators before any action is taken to close courthouses or layoff judicial staff.
