Kansas Governor Sam Brownback announced today the launching of a new website that allows Kansans to submit their ideas on laws or regulations they believe should be considered for repeal, http://repealer.ks.gov/.

“The top priorities of my administration are to grow the state’s economy and get the more than 110,000 unemployed Kansans back to work,” Gov. Brownback said. “With the help of Kansans, the Office of the Repealer is working to identify laws and regulations that are out of date, unreasonable, and burdensome. State laws and regulations shouldn’t hinder opportunities for Kansans and Kansas businesses.”

Governor Brownback named Kansas Department of Administration Secretary Dennis Taylor as the state’s Repealer.

“My staff and I will run a cost-benefit analysis on each law or regulation that is submitted for review. The focus of the review will be on consumer protection. Laws picked for repeal will be sent to the originating body,” Sec. Taylor said.

Sec. Taylor and his staff will send a status update within 30 days of receiving a recommendation. To view the new site or to submit a rule or regulation for review, please visit repealer.ks.gov.
