Kansas Adjourns Short Legislative Session
The Kansas Legislature adjourned in the early morning hours of May 3, making this the shortest legislative session in 40 years.
State lawmakers passed a budget and approved funding for courts and schools, but failed to address the state’s falling revenue due to deep tax cuts passed in 2012 and 2013.
Sharp declines in revenue are causing the state to quickly burn through its reserve funds, leaving some to wonder if the next Legislature will be able to fund critical state services.
