Not much got done today in the Kansas House, which started, and then delayed, another debate on another budget proposal.
This proposal comes from Democrats and moderate Republicans, who united earlier in the week to defeat a plan supported by conservative Republicans.
The debate started in earnest at about 3 p.m. Soon, House Appropriations Chairman Kevin Yoder, an Overland Park Republican, and Rep. Bill Feuerborn, a Garnett Democrat and the lead author of the proposal, began a spirited back-and-forth about the details of the proposal.
And then at 5 p.m. the House adjourned until 9 a.m. Friday without casting a vote. Some lawmakers wanted to attend the funeral of a lawmaker’s mother tonight.
The debate will continue Friday.
