Highlights from the Kansas Legislature

May 5, 2004


Highlights of Tuesday's activities at the Kansas Legislature:

-- A proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage failed to win enough House support to be submitted to a statewide vote.

-- Negotiators agreed to a $66 million plan to increase school funding, with debate expected Wednesday.

-- A bill offering some illegal immigrants a tuition break at public colleges and universities won final approval and went to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who plans to sign it.

Clock is ticking:

Tuesday was the seventh day of the wrap-up session and the 85th day in session overall, out of 90 scheduled.
