House Bill No. 2304

An Act concerning education; relating to firearms; standardizing firearm safety education training programs in school districts.

Message to the Legislature of the State of Kansas

Kansas law makes it clear that it is the role of local school boards and the State Board of Education to establish curriculum and educational standards for our students.

This bill is yet again an act of legislative overreach, an attempt to override our locally elected leaders and insert partisan politics into our children’s education.

Therefore, under Article 2, Section 14(a) of the Constitution, I hereby veto House Bill 2304.

Laura Kelly, Governor

Dated April 14, 2023.
