TOPEKA, Kansas: The Kansas State Legislature adjourned 2011 state legislative session without sending ballot measures to the 2012 ballot. However, opportunities to send proposals to the ballot have not ended for the lawmaking body.

Section 8 of Article 2 of the Kansas Constitution states that the Legislature is to convene on the second Monday of January of each year. Section 8 also limits the length of regular sessions in even-numbered years to ninety calendar days, but it allows these sessions to be extended by a two-thirds affirmative vote of both houses. This means that next legislative session can be used to send issues for voters to decide. View potential ballot measures in Kansas here.
