“Let's see what they do,” Brownback told Scott Rothschild of the Lawrence Journal-World.
The governor said his primary concern is ensuring that schools are not shut down, a reference to 2005 when the Kansas Supreme Court briefly considered keeping schools closed until legislators complied with court-ordered funding.
In a year-end interview, Brownback also talked about abortion legislation, voter registration and renewable energy.
