Legislators who want to crack down on illegal immigration are changing their strategy for getting something passed.

Earlier this year, lawmakers spent a lot of time earlier this year debating a mega-bill, but failed to pass it.

Next year, supporters say, smaller might be better after lawmakers reconvene Jan. 12. That's especially true, they say, with a looming budget crisis.

Olathe Republican Rep. Lance Kinzer says he'll focus on specific issues, including repealing a state law providing lower, in-state tuition at state universities and colleges to some illegal immigrants.

Hispanic groups say the federal government should address illegal immigration. But many states have grown weary of waiting on Congress.
