UPDATE: Thursday, February 23, 2012

The Kansas House has passed more than two dozen bills rolling back laws, rules and regulations identified by the state's official repealer as outdated or unnecessary.

The repeal measures cleared the House and went to the Senate on Thursday.

Gov. Sam Brownback designated Secretary of Administration Dennis Taylor last year as the state's official repealer.

Taylor gathered suggestions from throughout Kansas of laws and regulations that are burdensome to government, businesses or residents.

Many of the statutes relate to special funds for fees that are no longer collected. Others spell out duties of county officials that were adopted in the early 1900s.

In all, more than 50 items were identified for repeal and are in various stages of the legislative process.

Kansas House members will consider a series of bills recommended by the Office of the Repealer that identify laws, rules or regulations that are deemed no longer necessary.

The bills on Thursday's debate calendar were advocated by secretary of administration Dennis Taylor, who was designated by Gov. Sam Brownback as the state's official repealer.

Brownback asked Taylor last year to gather suggestions throughout Kansas of laws and regulations that are burdensome to government, businesses or residents.

Many of the statutes relate to special funds for fees that are no longer collected. Others spell out duties of county officials that were adopted in the early 1900s.

In all, more than 50 items were identified for repeal and are in various stages of the legislative process.
