About the Kansas Legislative Hotline

The Legislative Hotline is a free service of the State Library of Kansas Reference Division. The Hotline has been in operation since 1975 and is accessible all year. The purpose of the Legislative Hotline is to provide all Kansas residents with a toll-free resource for up-to-date information about legislative activity. 

The Legislative Hotline staff is composed of a team of four highly skilled reference librarians who provide answers to basic questions about the legislature, such as providing bill numbers, bill status, dates, and calendar information. Calls are answered by librarians who are experienced with the legislative process. The toll-free number also provides a means for constituents to contact their elected legislative representatives, and the librarians who answer the hotline will take a short message for one or both of the caller's legislators. All messages must include the caller’s name, town, and method for the legislator to return the call. However, librarians answering the Hotline are unable to transfer calls to office staff and other phone numbers.
