Release Date: Jun 24, 2016

TOPEKA – (June 24, 2016) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt tonight issued the following statement on the passage of Substitute for House Bill 2001:

“The Legislature has steered school funding into the ‘safe harbor’ identified by the Supreme Court as constitutionally equitable. After the governor signs it into law, we will present this new legislation to the court next week, and I am optimistic it will end the current phase of the litigation and keep schools open and operating without interruption.”
