TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House is set to take a final vote on a bill restricting political fundraising by public unions.

The House gave the measure first-round approval Wednesday on a 66-54 unrecorded vote. Approval on a second vote, expected Thursday, would send it to the Senate.

The bill would bar groups that represent teachers and government workers from automatically deducting money from members' paychecks to finance political activities.

Similar legislation cleared the House in 2012 but died in the Senate. Its chances of success are considered higher this year, with Republicans now holding large majorities in both chambers.
