TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Legislature is taking its annual spring break.

The House and Senate adjourned Thursday evening after passing a raft of legislation.

On their final day before the break, both chambers passed a bill creating tighter restrictions for residents receiving state assistance. Lawmakers also approved new regulations for taxi services that the company Uber says could force it out of the state.

State officials and university economists plan to meet April 20 to issue new forecasts for revenues through the June 2016. Legislators will use these projections to finish a state budget.

The Legislature plans to reconvene April 29 to wrap up its business for the year. It would be the 73rd day out of 90 scheduled.

The 90th day would be May 16.
