Brownback proposes to invest in horizontal hydraulic fracturing

Feb. 1
  • In his budget proposal, Gov. Sam Brownback recommended an additional $519,977 be allocated to the KCC to inspect the increasing number of hydraulic fracturing sites. Brownback appointed a committee to prepare for more fracturing, and thinks it will spur economic development. However, citizens are concerned about groundwater contamination and the amount of water that fracturing requires.
  • A woman whose grandson was killed in a traffic accident on Kansas Highway 10 asked legislators to approve a bill that would allow KDOT to double the amount of fines on busy highways. KDOT proposed designating these fines to K-10 and U.S. Highway 54 through Wichita.
  • Concealed carry permit holders could bring firearms onto public places, including university campuses, under a new bill in the Kansas House of Federal and State Affairs Committee. Only public places with security guards and metal detectors at all public entrances would be allowed to prohibit firearms.

    With all that has happened on school campuses all over the country, why or why would our legislatures even consider writing a bill, let alone proposing that it be legal to carry concealed weapons to school? There’s absolutely no reason for a concealed weapons law anywhere, anytime. Guns do kill people because they are attached to people who use them.
