Henry Talks 2013 Legislative Session

(KAIR) -- After 99 days, the Kansas Legislature came to a close early last Sunday morning with budgets for two fiscal years passed and a higher sales tax rate.

Leaders took a lot of time near the end of the session haggling over budget negotiations.

In the middle of those negotiations was Democratic Representative Jerry Henry of Cummings, who was the ranking minority member of the House Appropriations Committee.

Henry voted against the budget, saying it falls short in several categories, including funding for Corrections.

The House passed the budget 63 to 51 while the Senate passed it 21-16 in a vote that stretched into the early morning hours.
