A controversial bill in the Kansas Legislature prohibits local governments or public entities from spending tax dollars on lobbying. That would affect the abilities of cities, counties and universities to support or oppose legislation. The bill would make it a crime to spend public money on lobbying. As KPR's Stephen Koranda tells us, supporters and opponents packed a Senate committee room yesterday (MON) to sound off on the bill.
