The Adoption of Rules & Regulations in Kansas (2015)

Every resident of Kansas is affected directly or indirectly by state “laws,” many of which are actually rules and regulations adopted by a state agency and not the state legislature. If you eat or work in a restaurant, you are affected by food service regulations issued by the Kansas Department of Agriculture. If you are enrolled in a public university in Kansas, state regulations determined whether you qualify for in-state tuition. If you have a child in child care, regulations issued by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment govern all aspects of the way the child care facility is operated. This document discusses the rulemaking process in Kansas.
