Wichita Former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six may be moving a step closer in as his bid for a seat on a federal appeals court.
The U.S. Senate judiciary committee is expected to vote Thursday on Six's nomination to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Six turned in some 21 pages of written responses this week to questions from senators filed in the wake of last month's committee hearing on his nomination.
Many of the questions centered on old abortion cases in Kansas that were initiated by his predecessors.
The spokeswoman for Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas says the senator is still reviewing information on the nomination and meeting with Kansans about the nomination.
Sen. Jerry Moran's office did not immediately respond to a similar query for his position on it.
