Both the Kansas and Missouri legislatures are just a few weeks away from the end of their sessions. So why has so little work been finished?
The Kansas Legislature is just a couple of weeks from the end of its session, and many questions remain about which bills will make it to the finish line, including one to approve medical marijuana and another ending the sales tax on groceries.

Missouri lawmakers are reconvening Monday after a week-long break, marking the halfway point of their 2022 session. St. Louis Public Radio’s Sarah Kellogg reports on what’s been accomplished so far, but mostly what hasn't — and why some believe things are more dysfunctional than normal at the Capitol.
