Legislative update

By Sue Peterson

The Kansas Legislature is starting week six of the 2017 legislative veto session. Items to be addressed in the veto session include the budget for fiscal years 2018 and 2019; revenue package to fund state government expenditures; and a new K-12 school finance formula.

Last week, the legislature passed and sent the Governor legislation which continues the ban on concealed weapons in state hospitals, the University of Kansas Hospital, and community mental health centers. The issue of weapons on campus was discussed and amendments to continue the ban were not successful.

Please see the weekly updates every Tuesday in K-State Today through the Final Adjournment of the 2017 Kansas Legislature.

The Office of Governmental Relations also hosts periodic Kansas Legislative Review Sessions. See additional information on the governmental relations website. These sessions are open to the public and feel free to bring a brownbag lunch.
