Kansas Lawmakers Discuss Shortening the Legislative Session

KSAL StaffJanuary 28, 2016

Kansas lawmakers say that legislative sessions need to be curtailed to expedite decisions and save taxpayer money.

The House Committee on Appropriations held a hearing Thursday to discuss a bill that would shorten the session in odd numbered years to 60 days. Even-numbered years would remain at 90 days as required by the Kansas Constitution.

Republican Rep. Marvin Kleebs from Overland Park was one of many members who testified that the shorter session would allow them to spend more time with their families and return to their businesses. They also said it would push lawmakers to discuss bills in a more efficient manner.

Kleebs added that a shorter session could save taxpayers more than $1.9 million a year.
