TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers have formally adjourned the 2014 legislative session after failing to override a governor's veto of a change in state ethics laws. The House concluded its work at 10:28 am Friday, followed by the Senate at 11 am. Legislators completed the regular portion of the session earlier in May but were required constitutionally to meet for one day to officially end the session. House members voted 96-5 to override Governor Sam Brownback's veto of a bill to change ethics laws regarding transfer of funds from campaign accounts to civic organizations, as well as eliminating a reporting requirement for lobbyists who spend less than $500. Senators made no effort to override the measure and the veto stands. Several legislators also announced plans to retire to pursue other ventures.
