UPDATE: Kansas Senate Kills Remap Plan Splitting Topeka

KS STATEHOUSE-cropped copy

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Senate has killed a redistricting bill that splits Topeka between two congressional districts.  Friday's vote was 24-to-14. It came only a day after the House had approved the measure. The Senate passed its own plan last month, but it died in the House.  Legislators must redraw the boundaries of the state's four U.S. House districts to account for shifts in population over the past decade. The 1st District of western and central Kansas is nearly 58,000 residents short of the ideal population of about 713,000.  All of Topeka is currently in the 2nd District of eastern Kansas. The plan senators killed would have extended the 1st District into eastern Kansas, with a finger of land taking in the eastern part of the city and the Statehouse.
