Dion Lefler: "Senate passes state budget" @ Wichita Eagle Blogs

Detailed number crunching here. Also one of the best quotes of the legislation session,
"... One of the big battles of the budget year was settled mostly in favor of the House when the Senate acceded to carrying over a projected $71.8 million ending balance.

The Senate had originally proposed smaller budget cuts with about an $11 million ending balance. The House wanted deeper cuts and an ending balance of about $80 million Hensley blasted the House for banking tens of millions of dollars instead of funding services.

“To them,(House members) a $72 million ending balance is more important than the well-being of school children, disabled and elderly citizens and our state workforce,” he said."
