Kansas House moves ahead with budget-balancing plan

Lawmakers assembled a package of budget fixes that fills a roughly $200 million gap in the current budget and the 2017 fiscal year budget. The moves included shifting another $25 million from the state highway fund to shore up the general fund budget. The House gave initial approval of the budget plan Wednesday by voice vote, setting up a final vote Thursday.
