Office seeks input on laws to repeal
Visitors to the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson can tell officials what state laws and regulations they think should be repealed.
The Office of the Repealer will be accepting suggestions at Gov. Sam Brownback's booth in the Meadowlark building.
In 2011, Brownback established the repealer function as a way to get rid of laws that were deemed unreasonable, unduly burdensome, duplicative or onerous.
The repealing effort generated headlines when gay rights advocates sought repeal of a state law that makes sex between consenting adults of the same gender a crime. In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that such laws are unconstitutional.
But the Brownback administration has declined to seek repeal of that law.
The State Fair runs through Sept. 15.
