A special treat this Tuesday: a roundup of non-Trump political news you need to know.

1) The state of Kansas has announced the opening of a six-week window for a tax amnesty. Taxes must be paid between Sept. 1 and Oct. 15, with penalties and interest waived. The program is crucial, since the state thinks it can collect an additional $30 million for the budget with amnesty. Some are skeptical.

2) The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has reinstated a lawsuit by a Missouri legislator who thinks he should be provided taxpayer-funded health insurance that does not include contraceptive coverage for his children.

3) Bob Dole is 92 years old Wednesday. In a news release, Dole says his birthday wish is to see completion of the Eisenhower Memorial in Washington D.C.

4) The Kansas City Library Board meets at 4:30 Tuesday. Its members could discuss the lecture by an opponent of the downtown hotel project.

5) Missouri is the least “midwestern” state at the voting booth.

6) The Kansas City Council is getting an airport update. The verdict: A new terminal. Voters will get final say.

Here’s Tuesday’s report:
