Logan Avenue Elementary is hoping to send their students into summer with plenty of ideas on how to be active after Tuesday's 8th "Walk To Be Fit."

Emporia firefighters spent several hours battling what turned out to be a logjam fire just outside of town Wednesday night.

17th District Sen. Jeff Longbine has filed to run for re-election.

The break is just about over for state lawmakers, who have been on official policymaking hiatus for about three weeks after the regular session ended earlier this month.

17th District Sen. Jeff Longbine was in the majority voting for a $430 million tax plan for the state, but he tells KVOE News he doesn't lke the bill and he doesn't like some of the tactics used to solidify the vote.

Last week, there was some thought among state lawmakers the wrap-up session to begin Wednesday would be done in short order. That was before the Consensus Revenue Estimating Group said the state was well short of its revenue projections, not just for the rest of this fiscal year but for the next two full fiscal years after that.

The Kansas Senate is announcing its committee assignments for the 2015 legislative session.

When the 2015 legislative session convenes next month, Emporia Sen. Jeff Longbine will serve on four committees.

State lawmakers have been closely watching revenue totals and projections for months, especially after setting a so-called "glide path to zero" income taxes.

Projections are trending along with revised expectations, but the actual year-to-year numbers are well behind -- and that's a major concern for Sen. Jeff Longbine with the 2014 session looming in a few weeks.

The flurry of election and re-election bids this week continues.
