The legislature declares that the authority for the state sovereignty over non-migratory
wildlife act is the following:
(a) The tenth amendment to the constitution of the United States guarantees to the
states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere
in the constitution and reserves to the state and people of Kansas certain powers
as they were understood at the time that Kansas was admitted to statehood in 1861. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people
of Kansas and the United States as of the time that the compact with the United States
was agreed upon and adopted by Kansas in 1859 and the United States in 1861.
(b) Article II, section 1 of the constitution of the state of Kansas authorizes the legislature of the state of Kansas to exercise the legislative power
of the state, including the general police powers inherent in a sovereign state.
