Just in time for the weekend, temperatures will moderate with highs climbing back into the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s.
A bill in the House would limit the bargaining rights of teachers in Kansas.
A committee heard from supporters and opponents of the bill Tuesday. Supporters of the measure want administrators to have more flexibility to hire, fire and assign teachers.
The bill would take out some bargaining rights teachers currently have and would limit what can be negotiated by unions. For example, teacher evaluation processes could no longer be part of contract negotiations.
Some lawmakers say we need to look at new ways of recruiting, hiring and evaluating teachers.
