A bill requiring the NCAA to observe legal due process was signed into law by Nevada Gov. Bob Miller, and similar legislation was passed by the Kansas senate. The Nevada measure requires the NCAA to observe legal standards in investigating and punishing college coaches and athletes, particularly UNLV's basketball team and Coach Jerry Tarkanian. Tarkanian engaged in a long legal battle with the NCAA over due process after UNLV was placed on probation in 1977. The case went to the U.S.

The Kansas Legislature failed Tuesday to override Democratic Gov. Joan Finney's veto of a budget containing big sales and income tax hikes, but the narrowness of the vote was another sign of trouble for Finney and her new--some would say odd--style of populism. Since narrowly winning election last year on a platform of reducing property taxes, the 66-year-old Finney has puzzled and alienated legislators with what many consider eccentric behavior and caustic remarks.

Gov. Mike Hayden proposed curbs on late-term abortions and called for a requirement that girls under 16 notify at least one parent before terminating a pregnancy. The proposed changes in Kansas' relatively liberal abortion law do not go nearly as far as those expected to be offered by anti-abortion activists after the Legislature convenes Jan. 8. Kansas law bans the use of public funds for abortions but otherwise allows abortion virtually on demand.

Declaring that U.S. foreign policy shouldn't hurt farmers, President Clinton signed legislation exempting agricultural products from sanctions imposed on Pakistan and India, and the Senate later voted to give the president broad authority to temporarily lift all economic sanctions against the two countries. Clinton signed the farm measure late Tuesday, after the House and Senate rushed the bill through.

WICHITA, Kan. - Julie Burkhart's high heels click against freshly laid tiles as she tours the construction zone. Wires jut from walls waiting for connection, and the smell of new paint fills the air. With the countdown on, her walk and talk say crisp determination. Next week the newly remodeled South Wind Women's Center is scheduled to open. Under heavy security, doctors will perform abortions, as well as offering other gynecological services. Burkhart bought the unremarkable 1970s-era building last August through her foundation, Trust Women, for an undisclosed amount.
