Governor’s Budget Recommendations For KAMS

Unfortunately, as expected, Governor Sebelius recommended in her budget proposal released this morning that the funding for the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science be cut for both FY 2009 and FY 2010 and the program be delayed.  This recommendation by the Governor was expected by KAMS given the suggestions by the Governor’s budget office in November. 

Although the Governor has recommended KAMS’ funding be cut and the Academy delayed, the Kansas Legislature still must approve any cuts to the state budget.  At this time KAMS implores you for your help in contacting your state senators and representatives and asking them to preserve enough funding for KAMS so that the program is not delayed. 

All it takes is writing, emailing, or calling your state senator and state representative to express your support for KAMS and ask for theirs too!  We have several letters for you to pick from, if you’re not sure how to express your support.  Those letters are available here under the Subpage Heading on the right. 

If you don’t know who your state senator or representative is you can look it up here and this webpage will direct you to their name, office number, phone number, and email address. 

If you also would like to express your support of KAMS to Governor Sebelius, you may email her via the state of Kansas website here.  You may also access the Governor’s address and phone number here.

Thank you for your support of KAMS!
