Highlights from the Kansas Legislature

 

Associated Press

 

Highlights of Wednesday’s activities at the Kansas Legislature:

 

The House gave first-round approval to a bill strengthening regulation over owners of bears, big cats and other exotic animals. The measure is a response to a teenager’s death last year at a southeast Kansas wildlife sanctuary.

 

Clock is ticking:

 

Wednesday was the 76th day of the session, out of 90 scheduled.
