Highlights from the Kansas Legislature

February 11, 2005


  • The House Appropriations Committee rejected part of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' health care plan, an executive order reorganizing state programs covering medical services for needy Kansans.
  • The House approved a bill to provide $5 million in refunds and repeal a seven-month-old law that critics said forced some consumers to pay inflated sales taxes when they bought used vehicles.


Two Democratic legislators criticized Attorney General Phill Kline, a Republican, over private meetings he had this week with State Board of Education members.

Clock is ticking:

Thursday was the 32nd calendar day of the session, out of 90 scheduled.
