Session of 2000
By Committee on Commerce

10             AN  ACT concerning cities and counties; prohibiting the enactment of
11             certain local labor laws.
13       Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Kansas:
14             Section  1. No city or county acting through any process, shall enact
15       any jurisdiction-wide law or ordinance with respect to minimum wages
16       or enter into any contract in which the local government specifies the
17       payment of minimum wages to employees of other parties to the contract
18       unless specifically authorized to do so by this act.
19             (a) Any city or county regulation or law pertaining to minimum wages
20       in effect as of July 1, 2000, shall remain in full force and effect until such
21       law is repealed by the city or county entity that enacted the law.
22             (b) If it is determined by any officer or agency responsible for dis-
23       tributing federal moneys to a city or county that compliance with this act
24       may cause denial of federal moneys that would otherwise be available or
25       would otherwise be inconsistent with requirements of federal law, this
26       section shall be suspended, but only to the extent necessary to prevent
27       denial of the moneys or to eliminate the inconsistency with federal
28       requirements. 
29        Sec.  2. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its
30       publication in the statute book.
