TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The House Federal and State Affairs Committee hears testimony on a bill to impose statewide regulations on sexually oriented businesses.
But the committee chairman, Republican Arlen Siegfreid, said he didn't know if the committee will have enough time to work the bill and send it to the House this year. He said he expects the bill will be back in some form next year.
Among other things, it says such businesses can't be opened within 1,000 feet of schools, churches, day-care centers, libraries, parks, homes or another sexually oriented business.
