— Highlights of Monday's activities at the Kansas Legislature:

¢ State and local governments would have far less power to force someone to sell their property so it could be used for economic development under a bill winning first-round approval Monday in the Senate.

¢ The House Federal and State Affairs Committee endorsed a proposed amendment to the state constitution to deal with property rights.

¢ Rep. Becky Hutchins, R-Holton, wasn't giving up in her quest to repeal a 2004 law giving some illegal immigrants at tuition break at state universities and colleges, though she's didn't have much luck in getting her proposal debated in the House.

Also:

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius called on legislators to get serious about passing a multiyear school finance plan that closely follows a cost study presented in January and not to push the 2006 session into the summer.

Clock is ticking:

Monday was the 71st day of the session of 90 scheduled.
