TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ This year's legislative agenda for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism focuses heavily on boats and boating.

The department says on its website its legislative initiatives this session include a proposal that would phase out the property tax on boats.

The proposal calls for reducing the tax from 30 percent of appraised value to 20 percent in 2014, 10 percent in 2015 and zero in 2016.

The agency also wants to bring laws on boating under the influence in line with those for driving motor vehicles, and require people 21 and older to take boater education before operating without supervision. Kansas currently exempts people 21 and older from having to take a boating course.
