Kansas Legislature Starts 2014 Session

Associated Press - January 13, 2014 7:17 pm

Kansas legislators have begun the 2014 session with seven new members in the House.

The two chambers convened at 2 p.m. Monday with agendas consisting mostly of opening-day formalities.

Several issues will be addressed this week, including proposals to change the penalties for certain murders and to abolish the death penalty. Kansas enacted a death penalty law in 1994 but has not yet carried out any executions.

Legislators also are awaiting a Kansas Supreme Court ruling on school funding.
