Jennings Claims Procedural Change Limiting Needed Debate on Bills

Garden City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Some in the legislature are not pleased at the way things are going. During Saturday morning’s legislative coffee forum at St. Catherine Hospital, Representative Russ Jennings of Lakin spoke out about the Senate adding items to House bills and then skipping a step on to a conference committee.

Jennings explains why you should feel cheated.

Jennings blames House leadership for the power play. Senator Larry Powell says the House has done the same thing to the Senate in past years.
