KS Treasurer Proposes Ban on PSAs During Election Season

Elected officials in Kansas who run ads promoting state programs would face restrictions under a bill that's being championed by State Treasurer Ron Estes. Estes says incumbents should not be allowed to use state dollars to run advertisments in the leadup to elections. That's something that WAS done by two officials last year. Estes says the ads are a little different than publicly-funded campaign commercials.

State officers would be blocked from appearing in ads within 60 days of an election. The measure was heard by the House Elections Committee on Monday.
