Interesting that Owen as a moderate Republican was willing to compromise, potentially at his own risk. It is notable that the conservatives think that compromise is a dirty word. When the political pendulum swings, they may find that the compromise they wish doesn't exist.
Kansas is an agricultural state more than simply being rural, anymore, contrary to the comment made above. Nearly half the State's population lives in Johnson County, Wichita, Topeka and Lawrence. Rural areas are losing population and adjustments must be made. Though, as this occurs, there will be more fights between rural and urban interests.
Is there a link to this map?
Here is a link to all the maps that came up yesterday, plus votes. http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2011_12/measures/hb2371/
This war -- and it's nothing less -- has several fronts, mod R-conservative R, House-Senate, Senate President-House Speaker. Unbelievably personal. A truly ugly scene in the KS legislature. Amazingly, almost all the discord is among Republicans. No one is even close to being in control, and the Governor is an active co-conspirator.
As a lifelong Democrat I have to say that moderate Republicans in the Kansas Senate and House have really impressed me lately. Perhaps they can salvage their party from the damage done to it. Here's hoping...
it's to bad the maps are drawn up to get rid of the moderate republicans along with the democrats. kansas schools, children, elderly, poor are in a heap of trouble
