This isn't that uncommon.  Missouri doesn't have one either.  And like Texas, "third-class" counties (rural) aren't allowed to adopt one on their own.  Therefore, outside of urban areas, the engineer doesn't have any law to back him up - just whatever ethics he/she has.
The Structural Engineers Association of Kansas and Missouri  (SEAKM) is currently working to correct this.
And who says decisions by state legislatures are rationalized?
