Thursday, February 27, 2003 JEWELL COUNTY RECOI Capitol Comments By Kansas State Senator Janis Lee As the Legislature completes the sixth week of the 2003 session and appro~.d~es the turuaround date when all bills must be out of their houses or i origin, there is yet to occur any wide- spread discussion regarding the im- possibility of passing a budget with no ending balance. The Governor's bud- get proposal currently being consid- ered in both the House and Senate has an ending balance of only $400,000 on a $9.8 billion budget, which is essen- tially no ending balance. There was no specific ending bal- ance requirement in Kansas law until the early 1990s, however there was recognition the state needed a reason- able ending balance in order to meet state cash flow obligations. Revenues simply do not come to the state at exactly the same time the state must pay bills or provide funds to local school districts. Additionally, because the state budget must be built on revenue esti- . mates, and because the state cannot spend money it does not have, it is necessary there be a modest amount of cushion in the budget. The cushion, otherwise known as an ending bal- ance, allows for providing funding even when revenues drop slightly below the estimates. The final revenue estimates for fis- cal year '04, which runs from July 1, 2003, until June 30, 2004, are pre- sented in April 2003, thus requiring Kansas Legislative Review By Representative Clay Aurand Belleville citizen and former ex- ecutive director of the Kansas State Farm Service Agency, Adrian Polansky, was named Secretary of Agriculture Feb. 19. Polansky, also a U.S. Farm Ser- vices Director in President Clinton's administration, owns Polansky Farms and Polansky Seed in Belleville. With all of complex issues surrounding ru- ral issues, there is no one better suited for the job than Adrian. His extensive knowledge on state regulations and consumer protection will serve our area well. Not to mention his involvement in our community as member of the United Presbyterian Church and as a former school board member in USD 427. I want to wish a hearty congratula- tions to the Polansky family on this honor and I look forward to working with Secretary Polansky in the upcom- ing months or~ agriculture issues. In other news, the House Education' IE .FarmBureau Financial Services Vycke Garman (785) 376-3611 Mankato, Kan. Committee held hearings last week on school consolidation. Testimony came from the Kansas National Education Association, school superintendents and parents. However, as of Friday, the Com- mittee tabled a bill that would have mandated each of the state's 105 coun- ties to have only one school superin- tendent by July 1, 2006. It originally would have only applied to counties with a population of less than 10,000 people. However, after it was amended, - the bill was tabled where it was effec- tively killed. It's possible the Educa- ' tion Committee will continue to dis- cuss school consolidation in the next few weeks so it's imperative the Leg- islature keeps watching as this devel- ops. In fact, one bill that might be revived is one that could reduce the number of school districts from 303 to as few as 40. This week will be busy as the Leg- islature looks at a wide range of bills, everything from the protection of prai- rie dogs to a bill that would require voters to present identification at the voting booths. We may be working late as we try to wrap things up before we move on to the Fiscal Year 2004 budget. I .......... Mankato Mini Storage Call: 785-378-3331 785-378-3.737 116 N.
