TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State University would furlough 8,720 workers if the state does not reach a budget deal by Sunday.

A university spokesman said Friday that nearly 70 percent of its 12,657 workers would be deemed nonessential and furloughed.

Lawmakers were in the 106th day of their annual session, which was supposed to last 90 days. The state cannot pay salaries for the pay period beginning Sunday because a budget has not been passed for the fiscal year that begins July 1

Kansas State President Kirk Schulz said in a statement that the disruption caused by the potential furlough could have unintended consequences.
