TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Top Republicans in the Kansas Senate plan to meet next week to discuss filling committee chairmanships.

The all-GOP Organization, Calendar and Rules Committee is expected to meet Monday. Under the Senate's rules, it designates committee chairmen and makes committee assignments.

The panel includes incoming Senate President Susan Wagle of Wichita, Vice President Jeff King of Independence and Majority Leader Terry Bruce of Hutchinson. It has six other members selected by their fellow Republicans.

The Senate is likely to see widespread turnover in committee chairmanships because GOP conservatives ousted eight moderate incumbents during August primaries and broke the moderates' hold over the chamber.

Highly visible chairmanships such as Education, Judiciary and Federal and State Affairs were held by moderates who lost.
