H.B. 2556 repeals statutes authorizing cities of the first class operating under the commission form of government to establish recreation commissions to run city recreation programs. (This bill does not affect statutes dealing with recreation commissions which are separate legal entities created under K.S.A. 12-1922 et seq.).
The bill was recommended by the 1997 Special Committee on Governmental Organization. The Committee studied the issue of the cleanup of local government statutes by repealing obsolete statutes which are no longer needed or made obsolete by the granting of home rule powers to cities and counties.
