The Kansas House of Representatives has passed a liability protection bill that could greatly increase access to private airstrips in the state.

House Bill 2184 would extend protection that now insulates landowners from liability in connection with such activities as hunting, fishing, and camping on their property to noncommercial aviation. It passed the House 118-3.

AOPA Director of State Government Affairs Mark Kimberling and AOPA Southwest Regional Representative Shelly deZevallos are working with lawmakers to advocate passage of the bill, which was referred to the Kansas Senate Agriculture Committee Feb. 24.
