House approves bills repealing outdated laws

— The Kansas House has passed more than two dozen bills rolling back laws, rules and regulations identified by the state's official repealer as outdated or unnecessary.

The repeal measures cleared the House and went to the Senate on Thursday.

Gov. Sam Brownback designated Secretary of Administration Dennis Taylor last year as the state's official repealer.

Taylor gathered suggestions from throughout Kansas of laws and regulations that are burdensome to government, businesses or residents.

Many of the statutes relate to special funds for fees that are no longer collected. Others spell out duties of county officials that were adopted in the early 1900s.

In all, more than 50 items were identified for repeal and are in various stages of the legislative process.

"... regulations that are burdensome to government, businesses or residents."

Notice how they put the residents last on this list!

Notice how they put governments first on this list!

Notice how businesses come before residents!!

It is phrased completely opposite of what should be thought.

The People 1ST and Foremost. Businesses Second, with a near tie to the slimy lying, power-grabbing government, in last place.

It'll be all right. They were just saving the best for last.

Has there been any information posted about what specific laws are being repealed? It sounds like a grand idea, but I wonder who is looking at the fine print. . .
