The article reports that the Kansas Legislature has considered school financing at the top of its agenda as it reconvened for an 11-day veto session, buoyed up by new revenue projections. Projections include existing taxes that will bring in an unexpected 289.4 million dollars for the next two fiscal years. The revenue should total to 5.31 billion in fiscal 2006, 10 percent higher than 2005's actual receipts and 5.365 billion dollars in fiscal 2007.
