Governor signs first bills of the session

From an announcement from the governor’s office:

To promote agricultural education and to ensure economic development in Western Kansas, Governor Mark Parkinson signed into the law the first bill of the 2010 Legislative Session today.

"With the first bill reaching my desk, I am pleased to see the Legislative Session beginning to produce results," Parkinson said. "This legislation will benefit the agricultural education efforts at Fort Hays State and the economic vision for the City of Hays."

HB 2414 would authorize the State Board of Regents, on behalf of Fort Hays State University, to sell and convey to the City of Hays, all of the rights, title, and interest, except mineral rights, in two tracts of real estate.
