The committee’s chair, Sen. Rob Olson, R-Olathe, told the news outlet that lawmakers are working to draft a bill that can garner the support of both chambers.

“We still got some time,” Olson said. “If we don’t get it done this session, … we still have a couple weeks when we come back for sine die to run that. But I believe we’ll probably work hard the next few days trying to get a bill together.”

Wednesday’s meeting ended with the House and Senate chairs agreeing to schedule another meeting time to continue work on the legislation, KSNT reported.
