WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback's recent presentations about the state's finances are apparently at odds with other state figures.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Brownback has recently blamed the previous administration for a $2?billion spending hike that didn't happen and has also taken credit for spending cuts that he didn't make.
The newspaper also says Brownback has said in recent public presentations that only 54 percent of the money spent on education in Kansas finds its way into the classroom. But that figure is at odds with the nearly 62 percent the state reports to the federal government.
Brownback and his staff said they'd provide a detailed explanation of the governor's numbers, but didn't do so despite repeated requests.
