Brownback to tour state universities

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback will visit leaders and students at public universities and colleges around Kansas to discuss his support for higher education funding.

The Republican governor says in a release Monday that protecting higher education funding must be a priority as the state makes spending decisions for the next two budget years.

Brownback's tentative schedule begins with stops April 22 at Wichita State University and Butler Community College and concludes May 6 at Kansas State University.

Kansas legislators are still working on the state budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1. They return May 8 from a break that began April 5.

Brownback says all state agencies must find efficiencies but believes higher education spending must remain level.
