Kansas Legislature Adjourns Regular Session Sine Die, Announces Veto Session
The Kansas Legislature adjourned its regular session sine die in the early hours of Saturday, April 2.
During the session, several bills related to campaign finance were introduced but not passed.
House Bill 2707, related to political advertising, sought to define corrupt advertising as communications that do not disclose the name of the sponsoring organization and of the chairperson, treasurer, or other individual responsible for the ad.
The last action on the bill was a referral to the Election Commissar on February 15.
Lawmakers successfully passed an unconstitutionally gerrymandered congressional map and a $22 billion state budget plan that contained a raise for state workers.
Issues that weren’t resolved are expected to be taken up during a veto session, which is slated to begin Monday, April 25.
