TOPEKA, Kansas: Legislative session in the state has officially ended, with the conclusion happening in late May. As for ballot measures in the state, there were a few measures proposed for the 2012 ballot. Ballotpedia will be checking any reports or legislative information on possible certified ballot measures that may have been passed this session for 2012. However, this session will not be the only opportunity for the lawmaking body to do so.

Section 8 of Article 2 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 legislature can still refer proposed ballot measures to the ballot next session.
