Lawmakers pass coronavirus bill in Kansas special session

June 03, 2020 - 10:44 pm

Late Wednesday night lawmakers in Topeka passed a coronavirus bill, similar to the one vetoed last month by Governor Laura Kelly.

Rep. Jim Ward, a Wichita democrat, attempted to add a Medicaid expansion to the bill, which failed.  Another democrat attempted to extend eviction and foreclosure relief, but that also failed.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
