ON THE RECORD Senate / Changes considered fourth murder charge med Bw The Associated Press kUline David Mashak in Kans FROM PAGE A1 "It disturbs me that we're looking at cutting programs," Teichman said. One proposal floated Monday was to reduce the ending balance in the general fund from its required 7.5 percent of total expenditures at the end of the fiscal year to 3 percent. The change would generate $210 million. However, the balance is the state's version of a rainy day fund. The general fund is the largest source of money for Kansas government programs and where the state deposits most of its tax revenues. Graves' original recommendation would raise the base state aid per pupil by $50, from $3,820 to $3,870. Committee members expected to pare back their plan to raise an extra $263 million over two years. Among other things, the money would have increased base state aid to the 304 school districts and rewarded teacher and school achieve­ ment. It would have been financed through increase in sales, liquor, tobacco and a new soda pop tax. The Senate sent that plan back to the committee for revisions. The governor has proposed a one-year, $112 million deal to raise base state aid, increase special education funding and reward teachers and schools. The House rejected both Graves' last proposal and the Senate Education Committee's plan — in less than an hour.
