DALLAS — Kansas will save $5.4 million by using part of a $466 million surplus from fiscal 2012 to make early payments on $24.7 million of state debt, Gov. Sam Brownback said Wednesday.

The debt includes $11 million that financed rehabilitation and repair at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, with final maturities in October 2021; $9.9 million for a parking garage at the capitol complex in Topeka also set to mature in October 2021; and $2 million for restoration projects at the Kansas Capitol due in October 2012.
