— Kansas lawmakers adjourned their regular legislative session today.

The Legislature is scheduled to come back for its wrap-up session April 26.

Left undone was funding public schools and proposals to increase punishment of sex offenders.

The House has approved a three-year $633 million school funding increase, but the Senate has failed to adopt a counter-proposal.

The Kansas Supreme Court has ordered lawmakers to increase school funding in compliance with a cost study that says more money should be dedicated to helping students from low-income families.

wish I could just "take a break" from work for three weeks, maybe even vote to give myself a raise when I finally get around to going back to "work" where I take naps and read the paper while we're "in session". Because after all, when the supreme court of Kansas has to step in and demand that the Legislature finally give some money to our pathetic excuse for a public school system it must really take a lot of time to decide what needs to be done. SPEND THE MONEY PEOPLE!!!!!! What are they afraid of? That maybe our children will grow up and have the ability to make informed decisions and they'll get voted out of office? Kinda makes you wonder....
