TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas lawmakers are returning to the Statehouse for the formal ceremonial adjournment of the 2013 session.

The House and Senate were scheduled to convene at 10 a.m. with nothing on their agendas for what are typically ceremonial events. No attempts were expected on overriding Gov. Sam Brownback's line-item vetoes in the $14.5 billion state budget.

Legislators ended the regular session June 2 after passing more cuts in personal income taxes and lowering the 6.3 percent sales tax to 6.15 percent. The sales tax had been scheduled to fall to 5.7 percent in July.

The changes in tax rates are expected to generate about $777 million in revenue over the next five years.
