m.cjonline.com — The Kansas Senate and House participated in separate versions of legislative paralysis Saturday night while trying to wiggle state government out from under the burden of a $400 million budget deficit.
Inertia was so troublesome that House Majority Leader Jene Vickrey R-Louisburg, adjourned the House until Monday.
The Senate was still scheduled to convene Sunday, but the chamber’s agenda was unclear.
“On Monday,” Vickrey said, “be ready to go.”
Members of the Senate had been expected to engage in late-night debate on a bill raising Kansas tax collections by $210 million to demonstrate for taxpayers modest progress toward a financial resolution could be achieved.
Instead of hurling political talking points at each other, the politically fractured Senate elected to sit on their hands for a couple hours.
