Kansans Want Many Laws Repealled

KSCB News - November 23, 2011 8:25 am

Kansans have told a state official that they want hundreds of laws taken off the books.

Dennis Taylor, known as the state’s "repealer" says he has received hundreds of suggestions on which state laws should be repealed — ranging those regulating lynching to a recent smoking ban.

Taylor, who is head of the Kansas Department of Administration,
told lawmakers Monday that he would report to Gov. Sam Brownback on is findings soon. Brownback will make recommendations to the
Legislature on which laws to repeal.

Taylor says another law that has drawn several comments — both positive and negative — is one allowing the eradication of prairie dogs.

Taylor received his suggestions from a public tour and on an agency
website.
