TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Secretary of State Kris Kobach is preparing to outline efforts by his office to improve online access to Kansas business records.
Kobach scheduled a Monday news conference to discuss the initiative.
The secretary of state’s office is responsible for maintaining hundreds of thousands of records for Kansas businesses.
Businesses based in Kansas must file annual reports with the secretary of state’s office. Companies and nonprofit groups also must file their articles of incorporation and register an agent with the office.
Many lending transactions also require creditors to file a statement with the secretary of state, who then maintains a database of the personal property used to back loans.
