TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Board of Regents is preparing to discuss legislative proposals for higher education spending in the state budget year that starts July 1.

A review of the budget proposals was on the board's agenda for a meeting Wednesday afternoon.

House budget writers have proposed a 4 percent cut for higher education in the next budget. The roughly $29 million reduction in operational spending is in addition to $18 million in salary reductions.

The Senate is proposing a 2 percent reduction, or about $15.2 million.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback plans to tour public universities, community colleges and technical schools over the next two weeks to argue for keeping higher education funding unchanged.

Legislators will resume budget talks in May.
