TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gov. Sam Brownback is proposing minor funding changes in the current fiscal year, including restoration of salary cuts for state university employees imposed last year by Kansas legislators.

Details of the $6 billion budget are being shared Thursday with members of the House and Senate budget committees.

Interim budget director Jon Hummell describes the increases for higher education, veterans and public schools as targeted expenditures. They include a plan to fund all-day kindergarten at $16 million, restore more than $5 million in university salary cuts and give state classified employees a 1.5 percent wage increase.

Most of the budget was settled by legislators in 2013. The goal was to create two-year budgets for the current fiscal year, which began July 1, 2013, and the 2015 budget.
