TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Legislature is looking for a lawyer it can call its own.

Members of the Legislative Coordinating Council voted Thursday to take bids from people interested in providing legal services to the Legislature. Applications will be accepted through September and a decision made in November.

The legislative counsel position was created in the midst of a school finance lawsuit that resulted in the Kansas Supreme Court ordering lawmakers to spend additional money for public education. That led to a special legislative session in 2005.
