Good news: Kansas is projected to have a budget surplus of $2.9 billion.

Bad news: Kansas is on the hook to pay nearly $2 million in attorney fees to the American Civil Liberties Union and another firm. This stems from a federal lawsuit over a failed voting law championed by former Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
