Opinion: Bernie Nation can’t get behind Hillary

Scott Burkhart. ..."the only voters that the GOP is trying to suppress are the ones that show up from the graveyard."

Kansas lawmakers approve 'step therapy' and welfare reform bill

Bill number please! The only House vote that I see with a 79 - 43 was for SB402, which has to do with Mid-wife practice.

Partial rollback of business tax exemption draws supporters, opponents

Armen Kurdian "...the tax burden is heavily weighted on corporations and individuals, it's very progressive."

Kansas ranks the 9th most regressive in tax policy, and that was before last year's more regressive sales tax increase. The lowest 20% income earners pay 11.1% of their income in taxes, while the highest 1% pay only 3.6% of their income in taxes.

ACLU: Two-thirds of new Kansas voter registrations on hold

The League of Women Voters of Lawrence/Douglas County posted the names of those on the Douglas County suspense list on our website. In Oct 13, 2015, there were 1255 names on the list. After the purge and the new 90 day rule, on April 12, 2016, there were 609. Check to see if anyone you know is on the list: http://lawrenceleague.com/elections.html. Do you see anyone you know who is not a citizen?

Kobach wins 2nd conviction in double-voting prosecution

Sometimes a citizen will request a ballot by mail, then not mail it back in time, so they go to the polls to vote. Advanced ballots can not be turned into the precinct polling place. The poll workers should have given her a provisional ballot. Then the election official would determine if the mailed ballot was received. If it was, the provisional ballot would not be counted. If the mailed was not received in time, the provisional ballot would be counted.

Court rejects religious challenge to Kansas science standards

There's religion and there's science. They are separate. One is faith based and one is evidence based.

I once agreed with an evangelical that a class on religion should be offered in school. But, when I started mentioning all the world's religions that could be included, she got up and stomped off.
