Kansas Legislative Session Wraps...but Without Medicaid Expansion

A week ago, the Kansas legislative session concluded with Democrats and moderate Republicans mounting one last stand for a decisive vote on Medicaid expansion. It didn’t work. Nor did lawmakers ultimately consider a proposal to extend anti-discrimination protections to LGBTQ Kansans. That had been a top priority for first-term House Democrat Brandon Woodard of Lenexa. As the session wound down, Woodard told Jim McLean of the Kansas News Service, it was disappointing, but not defeating.


Brandon Woodard is a House lawmaker from Lenexa and one of the first two openly gay members of the Kansas Legislature. He spoke with Jim McLean of the Kansas News Service in Topeka for the Statehouse Blend Kansas podcast. Find it wherever you listen to podcasts.
