— Opponents of sexually oriented businesses in Kansas aren’t giving up on trying to limit their operations, even though the state attorney general says he won’t enforce a law restricting their signs along highways.

Phillip Cosby, the leader of a statewide campaign against pornography and adult stores, is promising to push for broader legislation after the Legislature reconvenes in January. A proposal to limit stores’ hours and locations was drafted by a House committee earlier this year and is still pending.

The bill would prohibit adult stores within 1,000 feet of schools, libraries, public parks, private homes, day care centers, houses of worship or even another adult store.
