South-central Kansas lawmakers host public forum

State lawmakers from south-central Kansas will hold their final public forum of the 2012 session later this month.

The gathering is scheduled April 21 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Wichita State University’s Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 29th and Oliver. Members of the House and Senate will take comments and questions from the public.

The Legislature ended its regular session last Friday with several major issues unresolved, including a new state budget.

Lawmakers are taking a break before returning to Topeka on April 25 for the annual wrap-up session.
