Kansas Lawmakers Adjourn Until May

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators have adjourned for their annual spring break. The House and Senate were in session on and off into last night (FRI). The House adjourned at about 10:30 p.m., and the Senate followed a few minutes later. They are scheduled to return May 8th to the Statehouse to finish their business for the year.


Sweeping Anti-abortion Bill Heading to Governor's Desk

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A sweeping anti-abortion bill is headed to Governor Sam Brownback's desk. The House gave final approval to the measure last night (FRI). It blocks tax breaks for abortion providers and outlaws abortions performed solely because of the baby's sex. The measure also declares that life begins "at fertilization," language that abortion opponents call a statement of principle and not an outright ban on abortion, though the bill's opponents are skeptical.


Concealed Carry Bills Pass House, Senate

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators have sent Governor Sam Brownback bills that would let people carry concealed firearms into more public buildings and prevent federal agents from confiscating weapons made in the state. The legislation would make it a felony for federal agents to confiscate firearms, firearm accessories and ammunition that is manufactured in Kansas and does not cross state lines.
