Legislative Coordinating Council Gives Short-Term Extension of Disaster Declaration Until June 15
Advocacy Day  newsletter (May 28, 2021) – Today, the Legislative Coordinating Council, made up of legislative leadership, met to discuss the extension of the current state disaster declaration. Earlier this week, Governor Laura Kelly requested the extension of 30-days, but after a vote of 6-2, the LCC decided to extend the emergency disaster until June 15. The committee also repealed the ban on evictions and foreclosures. The move rescinds the current Executive Order 21-13.
