Kansas Legislative Session Expected to Reach 104th Day

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Legislature's session this year is closing in on a record for length. Lawmakers were convening Tuesday for the 103rd day of their annual session and were expected to remain in session at least through Wednesday, the 104th day. According to legislative researchers, only one session was longer. In 2002, lawmakers met 107 days. Republicans who control the Legislature are sharply divided over raising taxes to close a projected $406 million budget shortfall for the fiscal year beginning July 1. A similar impasse prolonged the legislative session in 2002. But, that year, lawmakers also had a contentious battle over the once-a-decade job of redrawing members' districts to reflect population shifts. Legislative leaders traditionally schedule sessions to last 90 days. Each extra day this year is costing the state more than $40,000.
