Elections committee proves that if you reserve a room, legislators will show up

TOPEKA — On a riff of “If you build it, they will come,” legislators on an elections conference committee learned this morning that if you reserve a room, people will show up.

Legislative staff sent out a note this morning that the elections conference committee would meet at 9 a.m. in room 159S of the Statehouse.

Sen. Terrie Huntington, R-Fairway, chair of the Senate’s ethics and elections committee, said she had reserved the room but hadn’t called a meeting this morning.

She apologized to her fellow legislators and to staff as well as spectators.
