Kansas lawmakers are taking a long weekend before what they hope is a final push to finish most of their business for the year.

The Legislature is out of session Thursday and Friday, although small groups could still meet to negotiate differences between the House and Senate on legislation. Wednesday was the deadline for most measures to have cleared the other chamber.

Lawmakers expect to work through April 5, their so-called "Drop Dead" deadline for passing legislation, then begin a wrap-up session May 8.

Leaders want to limit the wrap-up to considering small budget revisions and vetoes by Gov. Sam Brownback.

This year's session is likely to be shorter than the typical, 90-day session.
