TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The chairman of the Kansas House Rules Committee says he expects the chamber to vote next week on a final set of rules for the next two years.

McPherson Republican Clark Shultz said Monday his committee may revise a rule that limits House debate on spending proposals.

The House adopted temporary rules Monday that mirror ones in place for 2011 and 2012. The Rules Committee will propose revisions for the House to consider.

Shultz said one issue is the budget rule, which says that if members want to propose higher spending for particular programs or agencies during a House debate, they have to offset it with a cut elsewhere.

He said there's confusion about which bills are affected by the rule and what spending offsets are allowed.
