Kansas lawmakers open session, see big tax, Medicaid debates

January 13, 2020 - 11:00 am

Kansas lawmakers have returned to the Statehouse to open their annual session expecting big debates on tax cuts and Medicaid expansion. Both the House and Senate were set to convene at 2 p.m. Monday. Top Republicans in the GOP-controlled Legislature planned to push again this year for income tax cuts after Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly vetoed two bills last year. Expanding the state's Medicaid health coverage is a key priority for Kelly. She is scheduled to give the annual State of the State address Wednesday and release details of her proposed state budget Thursday morning.
