Kansas Medicaid Expansion Bill Passes; Veto Expected

The Kansas Senate passed a Medicaid expansion bill with bipartisan approval today (TUE) as anticipated. Next stop: Republican Governor Sam Brownback’s desk. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, from Topeka, is among the many expecting the governor to reject the bill. 

Supporters would need only a handful of additional votes to override a veto – two in the Senate and three in the House. Even so, Hensley says corralling them won’t be easy. The bill would extend Medicaid coverage to an additional 180,000 low-income Kansans, mostly uninsured adults.
