For decades, Republicans and Democrats both made it hard for the public to know what goes on in the Statehouse.
But in the wake of a Kansas City Star series highlighting the lack of transparency, some members of both parties are pushing for change. Recent days have seen a flurry of activity.
Republican and Democratic leaders called last week for lobbyists to disclose when they approach the governor or agencies about state contracts.
On Monday, House Speaker Ron Ryckman, a Republican, announced he would no longer let lawmakers file bills anonymously.
