The South Central Delegation will hold its annual meeting Thursday at the Wichita State University Metroplex. Wichita leaders will share their agenda with state lawmakers before the 2013 legislative session starts Monday.
Fifty state representatives and senators make up the South Central Delegation and more than half are expected to be in attendance.
Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins says it may not be easy to get a Kansan back on the Agriculture Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp lost his seat on the committee last week.
Jenkins says the three remaining members of the Kansas House delegation already serve on high-profile committees, like Appropriations or Ways and Means. House rules say if you serve on one of those powerful committees, you can't serve on a second.
She says it would take a waiver for one of them to be allowed to take Huelskamp's place.
Political science professors from around Kansas will gather Thursday to discuss the 2012 election.
Washburn University in Topeka is hosting the meeting, which will focus on the campaign and the election results. Nationwide, Democrats held the presidency and gained some seats in Congress.
Washburn political science professor Bob Beatty says they'll look at how different the election results were nationally and in Kansas, where conservative Republicans gained power in the state Legislature.
