From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Feb. 10, 1972:
- The Kansas House today had voted to keep the legal age for purchase of alcoholic beverages at 21. The House had been considering a bill to reduce the age of majority for most purposes from 21 to 18.
- In other legislative news, the Kansas Senate Transportation and Utilities Committee, having made two amendments to a billboards bill, had sent it to the floor with a recommendation that it be passed. The bill was designed to bring the state in line with the Highway Beautification Act. A result of the bill, if it passed, would be the removal of some billboards from interstate highways and some federal highways, and the moving of others to a position further from the roadway.
