The Kansas House has voted against a one-year freeze on new admissions to the Kansas Neurological Institute. The Topeka facility provides care for people with severe developmental disabilities. Opponents of the freeze said there aren't other options for some people needing KNI's services. Trent LeDoux (LUH-doo) is a Holton Republican.
A bipartisan group of legislators voted to eliminate the freeze on admissions. The freeze was part of a $14 billion budget that House members are still debating. (As of 3:30 pm)
