Kansas Legislature: Special Session Finished in Two Days
Kansas legislators wrapped up the special session in two days.
Here are the highlights:
- Approval of a bill repairing a law allowing convicted murderers to be sentenced to at least 50 years in prison.
- Approval of multiple appointments by Gov. Sam Brownback, including the appointment of chief counsel Caleb Stegall to the Kansas Court of Appeals.
Legislators ended the 22nd special session without debating proposed changes in a law requiring new voters to provide proof of U.S. citizenship when they register according to the Dodge Globe.
