TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Board of Regents is requesting a $95.3 million increase in state tax funding for 32 universities and colleges in the system.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports $50 million of that proposal advanced this week would go to the six public universities that some regents hope could result in a second year of tuition freezes for resident undergraduate students.
Under the proposed budget, Kansas community and technical colleges would share an additional $13.5 million. Most of that would be for promoting a statewide program that allows high school students earn college credit.
