Legislature Wraps Up After 99 Days

KSAL StaffJune 3, 2013

Kansas legislators finished their business for the year after stretching the 99th day of their annual session well past midnight.

The Senate adjourned at just after 2 a.m. Sunday. The House followed 11 minutes later.

The only remaining scheduled business is a brief, formal adjournment ceremony on June 20.

Lawmakers left the Statehouse after giving final approval to budget and tax legislation.

The state constitution specifies 90-day sessions but allows them to run longer. Legislators had met more than 90 days in 32 of the previous 40 years, but only five of those sessions had lasted 99 days or longer.

Only two sessions have exceeded 100 days. They were in 1991, at 103 days, and in 2002, at a record 107 days.
