Governor: Kansas faces deep cuts without more federal funds

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - 
Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly has told the U.S. House Financial Services Committee that the state faces "drastic and damaging" cuts if the federal government doesn't provide more funds in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kansas is already facing deep revenue shortfalls because of the pandemic. Kelly said in remote testimony Thursday that state and local governments will have to further cut services if federal funds are reduced.

Also Thursday, the state health department said those who traveled to Aruba or attended out of state gatherings for more than 500 people will no longer be expected to quarantine when they return to Kansas.
