The Kansas House is currently debating House Bill 2299, which bans domestic partner registries throughout the state. You can listen live via the Internet.
The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Lance Kinzer, has just verified that the bill is RETROACTIVE. That means it would render null and void Lawrence's domestic partner registry.
At 12:14 p.m., the House was waiting to hear a ruling from the Rules Committee chair on whether an amendment to the bill could be made. Right now all you will hear is background noise.
