Session Laws of Kansas

Session Laws

All acts passed during each session of the Kansas Legislature are published in the Session Laws of Kansas. The Kansas Secretary of State compiles and publishes the information as provided by the Legislature. The Session Laws also include veto and certain other messages from the governor, certain concurrent resolutions, executive reorganization orders, directories of certain officials, an index to bills and Session Laws chapters, a general index, and a list of statutes repealed or amended by the Kansas Legislature.

The Session Laws are published on July 1 each year. Bills may take effect upon publication in the Kansas Register if so specified in the bill, or upon publication in the statute book (July 1), or on a date specified in the bill. Upon filing in the Secretary of State’s office, each bill is assigned a chapter number for the Session Laws. The Index of Bills and Session Laws Chapters is updated throughout each legislative session as final bills are filed with the Secretary of State.
