Senate OKs Adding Abortion Clinic Regulations

The Senate on Friday approved a bill that would impose regulations on abortion providers in Kansas, setting up a likely battle with the governor over the bill's passage.

The bill would force abortion clinics in Kansas to obtain licenses from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Clinics would have to follow a series of health and safety standards established in statute.

Florida Case Spurs House

Senate Passes Bill Allowing Sunday Liquor Sales

A bill allowing liquor stores to open on Sundays and holidays passed the Senate 25-14 Friday.

It now goes to the House, which has approved Sunday sales the past two years but has not debated the issue this session.

The Sunday sales provision would apply across the state unless city councils and county commissions block it.
