TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas Senate committee is preparing to review spending recommendations for public schools, state universities and community colleges.

Wednesday's Ways and Means Committee agenda includes discussion of a legislative response to the state Supreme Court's ruling on school finance and Gov. Sam Brownback's request to increase funding for all-day kindergarten.

The panel expects to hear subcommittee reports on K-12 schools and the six Board of Regents universities. Legislators have already approved base budgets for all of education for the fiscal year starting July 1.

The reports will recommend how much, if any, legislators should increase funding for initiatives sought by Brownback and the regents, such as restoring salary cuts made last year.
