After abortion vote, Kansas lawmakers’ power back on ballot


AP Political Writer

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters are being asked to give their legislators greater power over how state government operates. They will decide Nov. 8 whether to approve a proposed amendment to the Kansas Constitution to make it easier for the Republican-controlled Legislature to overturn regulations imposed by state agencies. It would cover agencies under control of the governor but others as well. If lawmakers don’t like a regulation now, they can complain and hope the agency backs off, or they can pass a bill that the governor can veto. The measure would allow lawmakers to overturn a regulation with a simple majority vote in both chambers. Critics see it as a power grab.
