Home Rule in Kansas: How to learn about this and other topics

Someone recently asked me about “Home Rule” in Kansas. What does it mean?

For questions like this, a great source of information is the Kansas Legislative Research Department. In particular, a document titled “Kansas Legislator Briefing Book” is often helpful. It’s updated each year, and the revision for 2013 is available, along with other useful documents, on the Reports and Publications page.
