TOPEKA — Gov. Sam Brownback on Thursday proposed a money-saving $14 billion budget for 2012-13 that he said would be a boon for Kansas businesses and taxpayers.
And since it’s 4 percent less than the current spending plan, it would leave some money in the bank — $465 million.
“If we didn’t learn in this last crisis that an ending balance was important, then we weren’t paying attention,” said Steve Anderson, the state’s budget director. “The budget’s all about fiscal stability, the tax plan is all about economic prosperity, and the two are married.”
