Lawmaker Asks If Lobbyist Can Testify

KSAL StaffFebruary 1, 2014

A Republican Kansas lawmaker is questioning if it was legal for a representative of the Unified Government of Kansas City and Wyandotte County to testify on a gun bill.

State Rep. Brett Hildabrand says he thinks Mike Taylor, a lobbyist for the Unified Government of Kansas City, may have broken the law by testifying Friday against a gun bill. Hildabrand says as he understands it, a law approved last on lobbying and gun issues year means tax dollars can’t be used to lobby against the 2nd Amendment.

Taylor says that law says state tax dollars can’t be used to try to influence gun control legislation, and that he’s paid through local revenue.

Hildabrand says he may ask the state attorney general for an opinion.
