Kansas Dems Push for More Cops

 (AP) – Democratic legislators in both chambers of the Kansas Legislature are voicing their support for three bills designed to enhance public safety.

One bill would use an additional fee on vehicle registrations to create a staffing fund for the Kansas Highway Patrol, which has about 80 fewer troopers than a decade ago.

A second bill would require a minimum number of staff members at state agencies and facilities, while a third would prohibit selling or transferring firearms to anyone on the terrorist watch or no-fly list.

Sen. Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, says the proposed legislation would “immediately make Kansas families safer in their homes, on their roads and in their communities.
