• 911 Act: Hearing was held. We worked extensively with the Kansas Association of Counties and other parties to support getting this bill out of committee. However, the Committee Chair announced in committee there were too many questions surrounding the fees and the bill would not be worked. The upcoming Legislative Post Audit Report was also mentioned as a reason for the delay. He advised he wanted to work with the parties over the interim to create a bill to be introduced early in the 2019 session. The bill is now officially dead.
