Constitutional Amendment to Remove Requirement to Adjust Certain U.S. Census Data: SCR 1605:

Summary. The proposed constitutional amendment would eliminate the requirement that state legislative districts be based on an adjusted Census count. That adjusted count, prepared by the Secretary of State, removes from the population non-permanent residents who are in the military or enrolled in higher education in the state. The adjustment also reallocates permanent residents who are members of the military or students from the place they were counted during the U.S. Census to the place of their ‘permanent’ address within the state. Impact on Congressional Districts. If adopted, the constitutional amendment would not change the process used by the Legislature to draw congressional districts. Kansas congressional districts have been based on unadjusted U.S. Census results for many decades.
