TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- With Kansas higher education officials reeling over cuts in state funding approved by legislators, the Board of Regents could press lawmakers to undo most of them next year.

The regents planned to discuss budget issues Thursday. Their agenda included proposals for restoring most of the funding lawmakers cut for each of the next two fiscal years, starting in July.

The reductions approved by lawmakers total $44 million over the two years. The bulk would come from universities' budgets.

In each of the next two fiscal years, state funding would be almost 3 percent less than it is now.

The regents Wednesday increased approved tuition increases for state universities, saying most of them were needed to offset the reductions in state funding.
