HAYS, Kan. (AP) _ The Ellis County Commission has approved a resolution for the county to seek a four-year exemption to the state's new concealed carry law.

The Kansas Legislature passed a law earlier this year prohibiting many state and local government agencies from banning concealed guns on their premises unless they provide security measures. Like several other counties, Ellis County had a six-month exemption from imposing the measure, but that expires Dec. 31.

The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1fegq1j) the Ellis County Commission approved a resolution Monday to seek the four-year exemption. The county also will arrange for a representative of Homeland Security to meet with county staff to discuss security.

The current plan calls for the courthouse and Law Enforcement Center to be secure, with two security guards at one entry point.
