TOPEKA – Today, Secretary of State Scott Schwab commended the enactment of House Sub for Senate Bill 244 which modernizes state corporate law. The bill also includes measures proposed by the Secretary of State that will enable businesses to obtain more services and file more types of documents online with the Secretary of State. The Secretary of State’s Office collaborated with the Kansas Bar Association to include provisions in the bill to improve business services in Kansas.

The provisions in the bill proposed by the Secretary of State include the following:

  • Expands the types of business filings that may be filed online;
  • Enables additional services and documents to be obtained online;
  • Eliminates obsolete provisions in the code;
  • Clarifies required filing information on business forms.

“My administration has been focused on reducing red tape for Kansas businesses throughout my tenure,” said Secretary Schwab. “This bill will enable further modernization of the office’s business division by making it easier and more efficient for businesses to file more documents online with the Secretary of State’s Office and making more services available through the office’s website.”

The Secretary of State’s Office also commended the Kansas Bar Association for working diligently with the Kansas Legislature to get the bill passed into law to improve corporate law in the state of Kansas. The bill passed with strong bipartisan support in the Kansas Legislature.
