Legislative experts are available to answer questions about the Kansas special session. Cindy Roupe is with the State Library of Kansas, which operates a legislative hotline. She says librarians can provide information such as how to contact a legislator, what bill numbers are being considered and how the legislative process works.
“Because if you don’t deal with this day-in and day-out, you don’t really understand what a conference committee does, how a conference committee works. We can help them through that process,” says Roupe.
The state library can accept calls and texts. Help is available year-round, but Roupe says it may be especially useful during the special session when things will be moving quickly.
