‘Joey’s Law’ to be signed by Gov. Sam Brownback


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNW) – KSN News has continued to follow the progress of Joey’s Law since it was proposed last year. Now, the law is on the way to the governor’s desk.

The bill was created in honor of Joey Weber. Weber was shot and killed by a Hays police officer in August.

It is aimed at protecting Kansas drivers with disabilities. The law provides for a placard and identification card for individuals with cognitive disabilities.

It passed the House unanimously late Wednesday morning and now goes to Governor Brownback. Brownback will sign the bill at 1:15 p.m. on Friday.

Members of Joey’s family and Rep. Gail Finney will be in attendance. KSN News will be at the signing.
