TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas legislators will reconvene Wednesday after a short break following an important milestone in the 2013 session.

The Legislature remained out of session Tuesday following last week's so-called ``turnaround'' deadline. That's the day most bills must clear their chamber of origin to remain under consideration this year.

Lawmakers stopped the clock on their session after Friday, the 47th day of their session. Wednesday will be counted as the 48th day.

Legislative leaders traditionally assume their session will last 90 days, although it sometimes runs longer. This year, leaders are hoping to wrap up business in just 80 days.
