TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is begging lawmakers to approve a plan for increasing spending on public schools before taking their annual spring break.

Schmidt sent a letter Friday to legislative leaders in both parties to express his “profound concern” that no education funding bill has passed.

The Kansas Supreme Court ruled in October that the state’s current funding of more than $4 billion a year is insufficient under the state constitution. Schmidt’s office has until April 30 to report on how lawmakers responded.
