From an article on the floor debate for this bill:


Sen. Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican who is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, apologized for putting the Senate in the position of having to vote on the bill, which passed the House 120-0 earlier in the week.

“This is one where I made some mistakes. The first one was signing the conference report,” he said.

Emphasizing that he is a Christian, Owens said: “I think this bill will set Kansas out as a place not to go if you believe any other way than particularly a very small religious-right perspective. … This country is based on freedom. And it isn’t ‘You can only be free if you think like me.’”


Republican Sen. Chris Steineger of Kansas City, Kan., said the bill is obviously directed at Muslims.

He said he was first approached about the bill in January. The original pitch wasn’t about protecting the Constitution but that Muslims were trying to use Sharia law to take over the United States and had to be stopped.

“I thought that was quite ludicrous at the time, and I still do,” he said. “This (bill) doesn’t say Sharia law, but that’s how it was marketed back in January and all session long, and I have all the emails to prove it.”

So, what does the law actually say?

So, what does the law actually say?

It's only a page and a half long, and it's pretty broad. Looks like any sort of beth din arbitration will be out too:

House Substitute for SENATE BILL No. 79


Sec. 2. As used in this act, ‘‘foreign law,’’ ‘‘legal code’’ or ‘‘system’’
means any law, legal code or system of a jurisdiction outside of any state
or territory of the United States, including, but not limited to, interna-
tional organizations and tribunals and applied by that jurisdiction’s courts,
administrative bodies or other formal or informal tribunals.

re: #4 CuriousLurker

So that applies, for example, to the Vatican (and subsidiaries), Scientologists, American Indians?

More like creeping DERP in Kansas.

Creeping stupidity in Kansas. Brownback should know better than to enable this sort of crap.

You know what we need next? A bill to outlaw any sort of African law.

Oh, and any Shinto ethical arbitration.

While we're at it, we need a law to outlaw Icelandic common law.

I'm pretty scared about the code of Aethelbert because, dang, you go walking through some Aerl's tun and the next thing you know you're paying bot for striking the ear off of his maidservant...

Kinda sad that paranoid schizophrenics are crafting law in Kansas.

I know I've put off moving to Kansas many a time because I was afraid that they might enforce sharia on me there. This makes me feel much safer.
