Our CSA bill extending the season to April 30 is HB 2448.
Yesterday I appeared before the House Agriculture Committee and requested introduction of a bill to extend the CSA season from ending on March 31 to April 30. If passed, the bill would not become effective until July 1, so this is a 2019 season issue. There are ways to get a bill into the statute book sooner, but even under the best of circumstances, I doubt we could get this done in time for 2018.
Senator Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, requested introduction of S 301, which would require outfitters and guides to register with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

The Kansas Legislature convened the 2018 session on Monday, January 8. Although a relatively slow work, legislatively speaking, the Governor’s State of the State speech delivered to a joint session of the House and Senate on Tuesday of this week made up for any deficiency of excitement or entertainment.

The House Federal and State Affairs Committee advanced HCR 5008 to the floor for consideration. We would expect to see this debated in the next week or so and then on to the Senate. The measure requires a 2/3 vote of both chambers in order to be placed on the ballot in November.
