An Update on the Obvious: Republicans Split

As is often the case in Kansas, what matters is not how Democrats and Republicans settle their differences, but how Republicans settle their own differences.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (registration required) makes this clear in its dispatch, Senate Split on Funding Plans.

The Senate has a three-year, $660 million school-finance bill under consideration; Majority Leader Derek Schmidt, R-Independence, is one of the authors. There’s also a $400 million proposal offered by Jim Barnett (R-Emporia). And in there House, there’s a $500 million proposal.

Says Sen. Dennis Wilson, R-Overland Park. “Obviously, we’re fractured in our caucus.”

Yes indeed.
