Lawmakers Taking Two-Day Break From Session

KSAL StaffMarch 3, 2014

Kansas legislators are taking a long weekend off following a major deadline during their annual session.

The Legislature will be out of session Monday and Tuesday, leaving the Statehouse relatively quiet after a flurry of debates in the House and Senate the previous week.

Friday was the so-called “turnaround” deadline, when most bills must clear their house of origin to be considered further during the year.

Legislative sessions are scheduled to last 90 days, though they can go longer. Friday was the 47th day, a count that has included weekends.

But with lawmakers officially out of session, the next day to count is Wednesday, the 48th day.

The next major deadline is March 26, when most bills must clear their second chamber.
