Kansas lawmakers approved an updated $16 billion budget Saturday on a 92-24 vote as they worked through part of the weekend.
The bill amends the spending plans lawmakers approved last year, and includes some targeted increases in state government funding.
It partially restores cuts to higher education from 2016, at a cost of $12 million. It also allocates $8 million to provide raises to workers in the judicial branch.
The bill funnels more money into the state’s pension plan, KPERS, to make up for a missed $194 million payment.
