Welcome back to another segment in this series on resources for following the Kansas Legislature … with a little help from your friends at the State Library.
Next week, on May 3 the Legislature returns for the Veto Session. According to SCR 1613 the Legislature could be in session until May 11.
What happens during the Veto Session?
- The Legislature has the opportunity to consider and override any vetoes the governor may have signed. See page 119 in Legislative Procedure Manual for information on how many days the legislature has to reconsider the bill and the number of votes needed for an override.
- Other unfinished business. Conference Committees operate a bit differently than standing committees. Again, the Legislative Procedure Manual on page 103 is very helpful for understanding these committees.
