TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas lawmakers are returning to the Statehouse for the final, ceremonial day of the 2012 session.

The House and Senate adjourned May 20. The ceremonial sessions being held in each chamber Friday are traditionally used for routine measures that close out the year.

This year's regular session produced changes in Kansas tax policies and the pension program for state workers.

But the Legislature failed to carry out one of the year's major tasks -- drawing new boundaries for districts of the Kansas House and Senate, the State Board of Education and the four congressional districts.

The job of drawing new maps is now in the hands of a three-judge federal panel in Kansas City, Kan., which concluded two days of testimony on Wednesday.
