Supporters of Medicaid expansion in Kansas are mounting an intense lobbying campaign, hoping to gather enough votes to override Governor Sam Brownback’s veto.

On Wednesday, a bill expanding Medicaid eligibility in Kansas arrived on Governor Sam Brownback’s desk. Thursday morning, the governor promptly vetoed it. Reporter Jim McLean and editor Amy Jeffries of the Kansas News Service discuss where the issue stands now... and what might happen next. 

Jim McLean from the Kansas News Service was speaking with editor Amy Jeffries about what’s happening with efforts for Medicaid expansion in Kansas. The Kansas News Service is a collaboration covering politics, education and health across the state.
