TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas legislative leaders and Republican Gov. Sam Brownback agree the redistricting process needs to get finished, but they're still bickering over how that will be done.
With time running out on the 90-day session, new maps for the House, Senate and four U.S. House districts still need to be approved.
A map passed by the Senate was killed by the House. Now a House panel is looking to draw the map for the Senate, breaking the tradition that each chamber handles its own district boundaries.
Complicating the matter is a federal lawsuit filed Thursday by a Johnson County woman asking the court to approve maps that have been drawn by the House and favored by GOP conservatives.
Legislative districts are redrawn after each 10-year census to reflect population changes.
