Top 2 Issues for Kansas Legislature Relate to Kansas Supreme Court

According to the Lawrence Journal World, the Top 2 issues in the upcoming Kansas legislative session are the Kansas Supreme Court's upcoming school funding decision and the method by which the court is selected.

I favor moving the Kansas Supreme Court (as recently occurred for the Kansas Court of Appeals)  from a Missouri Plan system with a nominating commission that gives disproportionate power to the bar to a senate confirmation system modeled on the US Constitution.
