Kansas legislative business delving into liquor, taxes, unions


Topeka liquor store owner Patricia Drake plans to attentively follow the flow of legislative debate on overhaul of Kansas law on sale of beer, wine and liquor.

In one corner, Drake will stand with proprietors of hundreds of independent retail stores licensed to dispense spirits…

In the 2013 session, which begins next Monday, the politics of business will be on display in other forms.

Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, said there would be renewal of Republican attempts to block withdrawal from union worker paychecks contributions to political action committees.

In addition, he expects the governor’s public education task force to advocate revision of collective bargaining rights held by public school teachers.
