TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Gov. Sam Brownback is proposing that legislator repeal 51 Kansas statutes and regulations that have been determined by the administration to be unnecessary.
The list released Friday includes regulations covering agriculture, property appraisal, corrections, state agency organization, state labor agency authority and county office administration. The specifics will be discussed at news conference later Friday.
The Republican governor last year gave Department of Administration Secretary Dennis Taylor the task of identifying rules, regulations and laws that were considered impediments to improving the economy or reducing state government.
The governor created the Office of the Repealer in 2011. He asked Taylor to solicit ideas from agencies and the public on ways to make state government more efficient and less intrusive.
