TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A favorable Kansas House vote is all supporters need for final legislative approval of restrictions on the use of state tax dollars for promoting or opposing gun-control measures.

The bill also would prohibit using state tax dollars to lobby local, state or federal officials on the issue.

The House planned to debate the measure Tuesday. The Senate approved it last week.

The measure is backed by the National Rifle Association.

The House's vote will come less than a month after a new state law took effect that says the federal government has no power to regulate firearms, ammunition and accessories manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas.
