Kansas legislators continue college tour
(AP) — A group of Kansas legislators will visit Hays next week and take a look at Fort Hays State University. They are on a statewide tour of higher education campuses to gather information about programs and spending.
The tour began Tuesday with stops at Topeka’s Washburn Institute of Technology and Emporia State University.
The members of the House and Senate budget committees were heading Wednesday to Wichita State University and several research campuses in the city.
The lawmakers are looking at the activities and needs of each institution. The visits are intended to help shape policy decisions when the Legislature convenes in January.
On Thursday the group will go to Fort Scott Community College and Pittsburg State University. Next week, the lawmakers visit Fort Hays State, Kansas State University and the University of Kansas, including its medical center.
