TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of the Kansas Senate are still negotiating over proposals to redraw the chamber's 40 districts.

They were hoping Thursday to end a feud among Republicans.

An impasse between GOP conservatives and moderates has prevented the Legislature from passing any proposal to redraw political boundaries to reflect population shifts over the past decade.

A federal lawsuit over redistricting is pending. The defendant is Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and he's asked to have three federal judges settle redistricting issues for lawmakers.

Republicans are at odds because GOP conservatives and moderates are battling for control of the chamber in this year's primary elections.

Conservatives believe GOP moderates are drawing lines to keep the chamber's current leaders in power, while moderates are suspicious of proposals from conservatives.
