Kansas Campaign Sign Law Raises Concern

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Officials in two cities in Kansas say they have concerns about the constitutionality of a state campaign sign law. The Wichita Eagle reports that the law requires cities and counties to let campaigns post yard signs on street rights-of-way. Wichita city attorney Jennifer Magana and Haysville's chief administrative officer, Will Black, say the law is not constitutional. Magana says the law creates different rules for campaign signs and signs with other types of messages, which conflicts with a 2014 U.S. Supreme Court decision that says city sign ordinances have to be content neutral. Black says Haysville is enforcing its current sign ordinance while working to rewrite it to comply with the Supreme Court ruling.
