Kansas legislators takes break until Wednesday

KSAL StaffFebruary 28, 2015

Kansas legislators are on break until Wednesday.

State lawmakers usually take several days off after the “turnaround” deadline that passed Friday. Most bills that have not been approved by their chamber of origin were discarded after the Friday deadline.

Lawmakers passed a raft of legislation leading up to the deadline with a total of 97 bills passed by the two chambers last week.

Thursday was the Legislature’s 46th day out of 90 scheduled. When lawmakers return Wednesday, it will be the 47th day of the schedule.

Lawmakers don’t get paid while they are on break. They plan to remain in session until April 3, known as “drop dead day,” then return April 29th after a long spring break to wrap up their business for the year.
