Republicans in Kansas Override Veto Against KPERS


Republican legislators in Kansas have successfully overridden Gov. Kelly's vetoes of several spending items in the next state budget that include an extra payment to the state's public pension system.


The GOP-controlled House voted 86 yes and 30 no to override all of Kelly's budget vetoes at once. Likewise, in the Republican-controlled Senate, the vote was 27 yes to 11 no.


The largest item Kelly vetoed was an extra $51 million-dollar payment to the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System or KPERS which funds county and city employee pensions.
