TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback is preparing to give Kansas legislators the details of how he proposes to protect core state services while making state government more efficient over the next two years.

Budget Director Steve Anderson was scheduled to make separate presentations Wednesday to the House Appropriations and Senate Ways and Means committees.

The state must close a projected $267 million gap between anticipated revenues and existing spending commitments for the fiscal year that begins in July. The shortfall results from aggressive income tax cuts enacted last year to stimulate the economy.

But Brownback's proposals will cover two fiscal years, outlining spending for state agencies through June 2015.

He told legislators in his annual State of the State address that aid for public schools and key social services will be preserved.
