TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — New maps have emerged redrawing the Kansas Senate's boundaries and a vote on the new districts is expected next week. The Senate Reapportionment Committee endorsed the new districts on Friday, along with new lines for the 10 State Board of Education seats. The measure also includes changes already approved by the Kansas House to its 125 districts. Legislators are facing a May 10 deadline to approve the new maps, which reflect population changes in the 2010 census. If the deadline is missed, it is likely that the June candidate filing deadline and August primary dates will have to be moved. Chairman Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican, said the committee would work on finishing a proposal for redrawing the state's four U.S. House districts next week.
