Contact Your Legislator 

The Kansas Legislature consists of a 125-member House of Representatives and a 40-member Senate. Representatives are elected for a two-year term and Senators are elected for a four-year term. The Legislature convenes on the second Monday in January for an annual session and generally adjourns in early May. The Kansas Legislature Website provides the information needed to contact Senators and Representatives, track the status and content of a bill, read supplementary reports and publications, find out what is happening in the chambers or committees, look at current statutes, and more.
