The bills are now going to a joint conference committee, where the two chambers will try to work out their...

Later tonight (FRI) in St. Louis, the Kansas men's basketball team hopes to take one step closer to the Final Four.  In the second game of an NCAA basketball doubleheader, KU will square-off against North Carolina State.  As KPR's Greg Echlin reports, the Jayhawks are thinking big.
