Topeka A Kansas House member says she'll revive a proposed amendment to the state constitution aimed at blocking parts of last year's federal health care law from taking effect in Kansas.
Health and Human Services Committee Chairwoman Brenda Landwehr plans to introduce a new version of the so-called Health Care Freedom Amendment by early February.
The Wichita Republican says it will mirror a proposal with the same name last year. That measure failed to clear either the House or the Senate, so that it couldn't get on the ballot for voters' consideration.
Landwehr's proposal would prohibit the state from requiring individuals or businesses to buy health insurance. The new federal law mandates that most Americans have coverage, starting in 2014.
Critics question whether states can check the federal government.
