Kansas Legislature Takes Next Month Off for Annual Spring Break

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators have started their annual spring break and will be out of session for nearly five weeks. The House and Senate adjourned Thursday afternoon after both approved a Republican education funding plan. The measure avoids increasing state spending while attempting to meet a state Supreme Court order to improve aid to poor school districts. Lawmakers plan to resume their session April 27. They'll reconvene after state officials and economists issue revised projections for state tax collections through June 2017. With monthly tax collections regularly falling short of expectations, legislators are likely to consider budget adjustments. They'll also be awaiting word from the Supreme Court on whether the school funding plan is acceptable. Thursday was the 67th day of the annual legislative session, with 90 days traditionally scheduled.
