SCS/SB 579 - This act repeals provisions of law which currently prohibit any Kansas City police officer from:
(1) Belonging to a political party committee;
(2) Soliciting any person to vote for or against any political candidate, party, or organization; or
(3) Making contributions of any kind for political activity.
This act also repeals the provision which prohibits any person from soliciting a police officer or a member of the police board for any political purpose.
This act is similar to SB 18 (2007) and SB 189 (2009).
