Lock Away Third-Year Spending?

The Kansas Senate approved the idea of using $122.7 million in next year’s budget for the third year of the three-year, $466 million plan the legislature enacted last year. (Of course there is much more to the budget than $466 million; that is just a supplement.)

The idea is both a good one, and of limited value. Good in that it recognizes that there may be a shortfall when the commitment comes due, of limited value because there’s probably no guarantee that it won’t be spent on something else. Then the legislature would have to fill a hole through some other means.
