TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas House has rejected a measure that would extend out the time it would take to fully fund the state’s obligations to current and future retirees.

The House voted down the pension refinancing measure 87-36 on Thursday. Gov. Laura Kelly put forward the plan as part of her state budget proposal. Kelly contends that the current contribution levels aren’t affordable.

Reps. Kent Thompson, R-LaHarpe, and Kenneth Collins, R-Mulberry, were opposed.
