Public Union Political Donation Bill Advances

Statehouse-NewsA Kansas House committee has passed a bill that would stop public unions from making automatic paycheck deductions used for political advocacy. Currently, union members can agree to deductions from their paychecks that are used for political purposes. Opponents of the bill say public employees and teachers would be denied an option for making those kinds of contributions. Annie Tietze (“teets”) is a Topeka Democrat.

Supporters of the measure say union members would still be able to make contributions designated for political purposes. Allan Rothlisberg is a Republican from Grandview Plaza.

The full House could vote on the bill as soon as next week.
