Kansas Senate Confirmation Votes Expected Wednesday


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Majority Leader Terry Bruce says he expects the Kansas Senate to vote Wednesday on confirming three state Board of Regents members and other appointments by Governor Sam Brownback. The Legislature is convening a special session Tuesday to rewrite a state law that allows convicted murderers to be sentenced to at least 50 years in prison. But the Senate is legally obligated to consider pending appointments. Bruce says committees will consider appointments Tuesday so the full Senate can vote on all of them Wednesday. The appointees include new regents Shane Bangerter of Dodge City, Helen Van Etten of Topeka and Ann Murguia of Kansas City, Kansas. Also facing confirmation votes are Secretary of Administration Jim Clark and Securities Commissioner Josh Ney.
