TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House and Senate are set to act on their respective versions of a $14 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

The House planned a final vote on its budget bill Wednesday after debating it for more than four hours Tuesday. The measure would spend about $6 billion in general state revenue in the fiscal year that starts July 1.

Senators are scheduled later Wednesday to debate their version of the budget, spending roughly the same amounts as the House on public schools, social services and public safety.

A final version of the budget will be reconciled by negotiators from the two chambers before lawmakers begin a monthlong break at the end of March.
