TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas Senate committee has delayed voting until Friday on two bills redrawing state legislative districts.
The Reapportionment Committee had been scheduled to take final action Wednesday on the measures. But Chairman Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican, noted the committee needed to wrap up hearings on the measures first.
One bill adjusts the boundaries of state Senate districts to account for changes in population over the past decade.
The other bill follows a bipartisan plan for a new map of Kansas House districts. The House has already passed the measure, and if tradition holds the Senate will approve it without making changes.
