TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A civil rights group said Monday it has resolved a lawsuit challenging a blanket ban on signs and restrictive permits for protests at the Kansas Statehouse.
Under the terms of the dismissal, individuals and groups no longer need a permit or a legislative sponsor to reserve space, The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas said in a news release.
Hand-held signs are no longer banned. And a person can only be banned from from the Statehouse if they break the law, not just for a rules violation.
