TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Senators are preparing to consider another version of the 2013 Kansas budget as the legislative session drags on without a resolution on how to fund state government.

Three Senate and three House negotiators have been meeting off and on to settle their differences on the $14 billion spending plan. The discussions have stalled over the funding of education, as well as the potential impact of a tax cut package. The bill covers spending for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Senators are scheduled to debate a bill on Friday that would incorporate items that negotiators have been able to settle, as well as Senate positions on education.

House leaders have signaled that they are unlikely to consider the new Senate proposal if it passes.
