Kansas Republican legislators are being warned to take increased security precautions in the state Capitol on Wednesday -- and female lawmakers are being urged to walk with a "male escort" -- as a contentious anti-union bill is scheduled to come up for debate and a vote.

Freshman Republicans in the state House of Representatives were briefed during a caucus meeting Tuesday afternoon about a series of security guidelines they should follow, given the large crowd of union members expected in the Capitol. State Rep. Stephanie Clayton (R-Overland Park) tweeted that the precautions include removing name tags, taking a back staircase into the House chamber and for women legislators to walk with a "male escort."
