Kansas Legislators End Session Quietly

KSCB News - May 29, 2010 12:00 am

Kansas legislators have formally ended their annual session without attempts to override vetoes by Gov. Mark Parkinson.

The House and Senate met only briefly Friday, with many members

absent.

That’s not unusual for the day the Legislature sets aside each

year for its formal adjournment ceremony. But in some years,

they’ve taken up substantial business.

Parkinson on Thursday rejected 11 items in a $13.7 billion

budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

One provision would have prevented the state from sending funds

to Planned Parenthood for non-abortion services for poor Kansans.

Another was designed to block regulation of greenhouse gases.

The Legislature’s substantial business was completed May 11.
