AROUND THE STATE:

KANSAS LEGISLATURE

TOPEKA, Kan. _ Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly this week faces a key test of her power to shape the Kansas budget and keep moderate Republicans on her side. The GOP-controlled Legislature is preparing to consider overriding Kelly’s vetoes of tax relief and spending measures. SENT: 600 words by John Hanna.

FLOOD BUYOUTS

MOSBY, Mo. _ The flooding this year in the Midwest and Plains states is likely to add more properties to the federal government’s flood buyout program, which has become costlier over the past decade. An AP analysis of federal data shows the program also can take years for property owners who agree to a buyout, frustrating those whose homes continually flood. SENT: 1400 words by David A. Lieb. With AP photos.

NAVAJO NATION TREATY

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. _ A 150-year-old document that allowed Navajos to return to their homeland in the Four Corners region where Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet is destined for a permanent home at the tribe’s museum. A tribal legislative committee is expected to vote Tuesday to accept an original copy of the 1868 treaty with the U.S. government. Treaty negotiators at one point had planned to move the Navajos to land in present-day Kansas and Oklahoma. SENT: 900 words by Felicia Fonseca. With AP Photos.

ABORTION-WHAT’S CHANGED

A wave of state abortion bans has set off speculation: What would happen if Roe v. Wade, the ruling establishing abortion rights nationwide, were overturned? Although far from a certainty, even with increased conservative clout on the Supreme Court, a reversal of Roe would mean abortion policy would revert to the states, and many would be eager to impose bans. SENT: 1600 words By David Crary and Carla K. Johnson.
