TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas lawmakers plan to have meetings Sunday before their annual session opens, and a gathering for Senate Republicans is closed to the public.

Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce’s office confirmed that GOP senators plan to meet at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Kansas Bankers Association headquarters in west Topeka. His office described it as a pre-session orientation session that traditionally has been private.

House Democrats have scheduled a retreat for noon Sunday at the Jayhawk Tower downtown, with policy briefings beginning at 1:30 p.m. Senate Democrats have been invited, and the event is open to reporters and the public.

House Republicans are not planning a gathering.

The House and Senate are scheduled to convene at 2 p.m. Monday for the session’s opening day.
