TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House is preparing to vote on legislation restricting the use of state tax dollars to promote or oppose gun-control measures.

The bill up for House debate Tuesday would also prohibit the use of state funds to lobby local, state or federal officials on gun control.

The Senate passed the measure last week, and House approval would send it to Gov. Sam Brownback. He's a strong gun-rights supporter, but he hasn't said whether he'll sign it.

The measure is backed by the National Rifle Association.

A Kansas law that took effect in April says the federal government has no power to regulate firearms, ammunition and accessories manufactured, sold and kept only in the state.
