Strip Club Bill Dies in KS House Committee

A bill creating new regulations for strip clubs failed today (FRI) in a Kansas House committee. The requirements would have included a rule barring any contact between dancers and patrons. Representative Brett Hildabrand (HILL-duh-brand), a Republican from Shawnee, offered an amendment that gutted much of the bill, with the exception of regulations dictating where clubs could be located. He says he originally understood that the bill would only regulate zoning issues about the location of clubs, not what happens in the clubs.

Supporters of the bill argued that strip clubs are accompanied by crime and social problems. The bill's failure to make it out of committee may mean the end of the issue for this session in the Legislature.
