TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas officials are rethinking new regulations on checking the accuracy of large scales used to weigh agricultural products, recycling materials and scrap metal. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the state Agriculture Department has delayed enforcement of the new rules, which were scheduled to take effect July 1. The biggest change would require private scale technicians have new installations reviewed by competitors and certified for accuracy. Many technicians around the state objected, saying the practice could void a manufacturer's warranty. The head of the Agriculture Department's Division of Weights and Measures wrote to scale technicians last week recognizing those concerns.
