Democratic state Representative John Wilson, from Lawrence, said he is stepping down from his seat in the Kansas House later this year. He made the announcement Monday during the final day of the 2017 legislative session.

Wilson has two young children and said he’s had to divide his attention between his legislative duties, his private job and family.
 
“This is a decision I don’t take lightly. In fact, now is actually a really great time to be in the Legislature. It’s just not a really great time for me, with where I am in my career and my family,” said Wilson.
 
Wilson is the top Democrat on the House health committee. He first took office in 2013.
