Long Legislative Spring Session Expected in KS

kshouse(Photo Credit:
It could be a long spring at the Kansas Statehouse. As lawmakers approach their annual three-week recess before returning for the veto session, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka says an ominous sign of a lengthy session has appeared in his inbox: a memo to lawmakers from the Director of Administrative Services listing Topeka hotel rates and contact information.

The legislative session is only supposed to run 90 days, but a number of lawmakers are suggesting that won't be enough time for this year, due to a heavy policy agenda from Governor Sam Brownback and due to the length of negotiations over redistricting. The longest session in Kansas history was in 2002, when it took 107 days to adjourn.
