Kansas City, MO – One question mark has been cleared in the March second death of a 7 year old boy when he was hit by a Kansas City Fire Department truck.

The Kansas Board of Regents says it won't raise tuition for in-state students if the legislature agrees to limit budget cuts and gives the go ahead to use federal stimulus money. The Kansas House passes a bill to create a reserve fund. Kansas Attorney General Steve Six says saving money should not be the justification for abolishing the Kansas death penalty law.

The Missouri Tigers roared past Texas Tech last night 81-60 in the Big 12 Championship in Oklahoma City. Both the KU and K-State men's teams were eliminated in the quarterfinals.

The Kansas Senate took note of KU's loss.

The women's teams fared better, avoiding legislative action. There were just too many last minute details unfinished for the city council to put forth a Kansas City budget proposal yesterday, but the council covered its bases for possible tax and fee increases.
