Advisory panel urges rewrite of Kansas farm law

KSAL StaffNovember 24, 2013

An advisory panel has recommended amending Kansas’ corporate agriculture law to alter provisions that might be vulnerable to a constitutional challenge.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that members of a Kansas Judicial Council’s advisory committee issued the recommendation Friday.

They conclude that mandating all partners in a relevant farm corporation had to be Kansans was discriminatory against nonresidents. The panel also agreed that a requirement that farm corporations operating in the state, with the exception of family farms, had to be formed under Kansas law violated court precedent on interstate commerce.

Lawmakers debated changes to Kansas’ corporate farming law in the 2013 session but decided that they need more information before making changes.
