The regulations can be found at the KDA website, agriculture.ks.gov/ProposedRegs. Written comments may be submitted prior to the hearing on that web page as well.

All interested persons may attend the hearing and will be given the opportunity to express comments orally on the adoptions of the proposed regulations during the hearing. In order to give all parties an opportunity to present their views, it may be necessary to request that each participant limit any oral presentation to five minutes.

Persons who require special accommodations must make their needs known at least five days prior to the hearing.
