How They Voted

February 9, 2006

The Kansas House last week approved, 94-27, House Bill 2553, which would prohibit the Kansas Department of Revenue from entering into or renewing any contract that authorizes the renewal of drivers' licenses at the business location of any insurance provider authorized to sell motor vehicle liability insurance in Kansas.

Department and AAA Kansas had begun a pilot project in which AAA offered the license renewal service. The Kansas Insurance Department, which supports the bill, maintains the program should be open to all insurers or none.

The bill has gone to the Senate, where it has been referred to committee for study.

Anthony Brown, R-Eudora, voted for the bill.
