in the Legislature

The ACLU of Kansas is never busier than when the Legislature is in session. Either independently or with our partners in various and diverse coalitions, we work to protect civil liberties for all Kansans by either placing, supporting, altering, or defeating legislation that would threaten those civil liberties.

TESTIMONY IN SUPPORT OF HB 2317

We urge you to support HB 2317 because this bill could prevent the displacement and disenfranchisement of poor communities due to poorly written eminent domain laws. This is an issue of equality, justice, and property rights, to which every Kansan should have equal access.
