Kansas governmental spending from several perspectives.
Here are charts of government spending in Kansas. The source of the spending data is Kansas Fiscal Facts 2020 and earlier versions. This is published by Kansas Legislative Research Department, the nonpartisan research arm of the legislature.
Figures for 2019 and earlier are actual values, while 2020 and 2021 are approved figures. For 2020 and beyond, the population, GDP, personal income, and consumer price index figures are my estimates.
Values have been adjusted using CPI to 2019 dollars.
The general fund is, according to the state: “The primary operating fund of the State. It accounts for all financial resources of the State except those required to be accounted for in another fund. The state general fund is primarily supported by tax revenue.” It is the fund over which the governor and legislature have the most control.
