Topeka, Kansas (AP) —Republicans are ready to give leaders the final say on how Kansas will use the Federal Coronavirus Relief Fund.
On Tuesday, some demanded that they secure nearly $ 2 billion in that money for small businesses.
The Republican-controlled state legislature is expected to veto Democratic Governor Laura Kelly’s budget legislative provisions and leave the final decision to spend $ 4.8 billion on federal funding to top lawmakers.
The Republican-controlled House of Representatives cast 86-38 votes on Monday to overturn the veto.
The Senate is also considering a bill to secure nearly $ 1 billion of the state’s COVID-19 relief fund, an additional $ 1 billion allocated to cities and counties to compensate SMEs.
