Kansas: Legislature Passes Emergency Powers Legislation and Adjourns from Special Session

The Kansas Legislature adjourned from its Special Session after passing Emergency Powers Legislation, House Bill 2054.  House Bill 2054 prevents the Governor from using emergency powers to seize ammunition or limit the sale of firearms during a declared state of emergency, including for Covid-19.  This bipartisan measure will now be sent to Governor Laura Kelly’s desk for her signature.

Thank you to those lawmakers who voted in support of this important legislation, as well as the original resolution during the 2020 Legislative Session.
