Kansas State Fire Marshal Doug Jorgensen hopes to reinstate some explosive storage regulations which were apparently accidentally eliminated in 2010. In addition, there are plans to create new rules to better track the explosives industry. For example, new regulations would require new licenses every three years and annual inspections of explosives storage sites.
The new regulations wrapped into Senate Bill 227 can be viewed using the download link below. It's unclear whether the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee will vote to advance the bill to the full Senate.
If adopted, the new regulations could impact UXO contractors doing long-term projects in Kansas.
