The State Library of Kansas is reminding residents that information about the 2020 Kansas Legislature is only a phone call or a chat away.

Since the 1970s, the library has offered a legislative hotline that Kansas residents can call to ask about the status of bills and the legislative process, leave brief messages for their legislators or request copies of bills, journals and other legislative documents. The number is 1-800-432-3924. Questions will be answered by librarians from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. This service is available yearlong, and questions are kept confidential.

In addition to calling, Kansans can also email infodesk@ks.gov or use an online “Ask a Librarian” chat service that can be found at kslib.info/ask. Questions may also be texted to 785-256-0733.

The 2020 Kansas legislative session begins Monday, Jan. 13.
