TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas legislative leaders are continuing to work on a school funding measure that would satisfy a state Supreme Court ruling as a major deadline of the 2014 session approaches.

The House was expected to introduce a bill Monday that would increase funding to address two deficiencies deemed unconstitutional by court in its March 7 ruling. The court gave lawmakers until July to resolve issues with aid to poor school districts, a fix that could cost as much as $129 million.

The Legislature begins a three-week break on April 4, increasing the sense of urgency to get a bill passed. House and Senate Republican leaders have been negotiating on a plan.
