In March 2021, the Kansas Legislature passed KSA 79-2988 (formerly Senate Bill 13) to establish limitations on ad valorem property tax levies by taxing subdivisions without an additional notice and hearing prior to budget adoption. KSA 79-2988 is retroactively effective January 1, 2021. The change in policy applies to the 2022 budget cycle.
