The Kansas Supreme Court on Monday canceled statewide court furloughs that were scheduled for Thursday and Friday, as well as two in June.
The furloughs were canceled because the Kansas Legislature passed a budget that included a supplemental allocation to prevent the furloughs in this fiscal year. Gov. Sam Brownback hadn’t yet signed the budget, but the Supreme Court expected approval. The furloughs were originally scheduled because the court system had a revenue shortfall caused by a drop in filing fees collected statewide.
