Historic Special Session Legislation Signed Into Law

Topeka (June 21, 2024) – Today, the two historic pieces of legislation adopted during the special session were signed into law. SB 1 simplifies the tax code and provides tax relief to every Kansan and HB 2001 represents a historic opportunity to attract the Chiefs and Royals to Kansas and most importantly, keep them in the Kansas City area.

Following the governor’s signature, Senate President Ty Masterson and House Speaker Dan Hawkins
issued the following statements.

On SB 1:
“Broad property and income tax relief is now officially on its way to every Kansan. While we firmly
believe more relief could have and should have been included in this bill, it is an important first step toward putting Kansas in the best position for economic growth. When we return in January, we plan to build on this momentum with a focus on providing property tax relief for every Kansan.”

On HB 2001:
“Kansas’ unique STAR Bond tool now provides an additional option for the Kansas City Chiefs and
Royals to remain in the Kansas City region without raising taxes to fund new, state-of-the-art stadium
complexes for the teams. This exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity holds unlimited potential for both our state and for Chiefs and Royals fans everywhere.”
