Kansas lawmakers overturn governor's veto, restoring KPERS funding

Kansas lawmakers on Wednesday overturned Gov. Laura Kellyís veto of an unscheduled $51 million contribution to public employee pensions and other provisions she struck from the $18 billion state spending plan.

The Senate and House both carried the two-thirds majority needed to override the budget item vetoes before bringing this yearís session to its ceremonial close.

Republicans blasted the Democratic governorís decision to block the payment to the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System and funding set aside for mental health programs.
