TODAY'S SCRIPTURE Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away — Mark 13:31 (NIV) • LEGISLATURE Budget talks continue Negotiators from House, Senate may settle talks today By The Associated Press TOPEKA — Legislators inched Monday toward finishing a plan for balancing revenue and spending in the new state budget, with some urging more flexibility from Gov. Bill Graves. House and Senate negotiators struggled to close a $206 million gap between expected revenues and approved spending for the state's fiscal 2002, which starts July 1. Graves has proposed $117.6 million in tax increases and given legislators a list of $12.1 million in reductions he would accept in appropriations already approved for the new fiscal year After three days of meetings, the negotiators still didn't have a plan — or any definitive agreements on major issues. Still, they insisted all of the talking they have done has moved them closer, making an agreement possible today "I think the pieces are ready to fall into place," said Sen. David Adkins, R-Leawood. Graves softened his rhetoric, issuing a statement praising the negotiators for "their hard work" over the weekend and suggesting that legislators could finish their session by the end of this week. However, he didn't back away from his objective — avoiding cuts in state programs. He has threatened to veto any plan that cuts too deeply "If the governor wants to make progress on this budget, I would hope he would be a little more reasonable," Rep. Rocky Nichols, D-Topeka, said during the budget talks. Later, Rep. Melvin Neufeld, R-Ingalls, said: "I don't,,think the governor's in this. This is between the Senate and the House." House OKs plan to aid railroads By The Associated Press TOPEKA — A bill encouraging the restoration of railroad tracks used for hauling grain from rural communities has cleared the House and gone to the Senate. The bill provides $10 million in income tax credits over 20 years, at a maximum $500,000 a year, for paying off bonds for restore and repair railroad tracks. House Transportation Chairman Gary Hayzlett said the measure was intended to help Pittsburg-based Watco Cos., which recently agreed to buy 900 miles of short-line rail in central and western Kansas from Central Kansas Railway Much of the track was in danger of abandonment. Watco spokesman Ed McKechnie, a former House member, said the company plans to spend $55 million in the next 10 years to restore the Kansas lines. Some of the track, notably between Salina and Osborne, is too lightweight to meet current industry standards, he said. Watco needs $16 million for the first two years of improvements plus $3.2 million for grain cars.
