The Kansas Department of Revenue reports an increase in tax collections for the month of October.
That is the second time this year that revenue beat projections. That didn’t happen a single time in 2016.
Kansas will collect about $222 million more than previously projected over the next two years.
What does that mean for the school district? Well, $222 million isn’t actually enough to reopen and fund the schools. They would actually need about $400- $600 million, so they are still short.
