Emporia State administrators are hosting state lawmakers with some financial clout next week.
Members of the Kansas House Appropriations and Senate Ways and Means committees are taking a bus tour of Regents universities.
While in Emporia, lawmakers will take part in Q-and-A sessions led by President Dr. Michael Shonrock. They will also take campus tours, hear testimonials and take open forum questions before they depart.
Emporia State had its budget cut nearly $3 million dollars for the current and upcoming fiscal years. The university obtained a 6.5-percent tuition increase to help offset the cut, and research is ongoing on other adjustments to come if needed.
Presentations will begin in the noon hour, with the first Q-and-A session at 1 pm.
