Does this mean they will lower the amount of hike they have requested?

Kansas lawmakers urge review of federal health overhaul

Whew. Simply sending a letter of undisclosed purpose is now considered news for this site? Other than that they sent a letter, we really haven't learned anything about their intentions. Are they asking for subsidies to be explicitly allowed? Are they wanting every Kansan to receive a free chicken with their ACA coverage? Would have been nice for a reporter to perhaps call someone and ask.

Kansas House soundly rejects plan to avert steep budget cuts

I'd be real curious to see what would happen if we dissolved this state government and held new election right now. My suspicion is that a lot of these folks wouldn't be coming back. It'd also be fun if anybody in office during such a dissolution would be barred from running for at least one election cycle.

Brownback urges GOP to reach consensus; sets Monday deadline

The judicial rulings on the school funding issues could create an even more chaotic environment than we've currently got. If they rule that the state is still underfunding education from the first suit and/or that the block grant k-12 budget is unconstitutional, the fecal matter is really going to hit the fan.

Lawmakers, frustrated by failure of tax bill, mulling what to do next

Would be useful here in Kansas to have the ability to dissolve the state government when we have incompetent ones like we currently have that can't govern and can't do pretty much the one important task they have every year: passing a funded budget. Throwing up their hands and saying "gee...this is just too hard, we'll let the governor sort it out" is simply not a solution. He was not elected to determine what should or should not be funded and is far too partisan, ideological, and corrupted by the Koch's to be trusted with this responsibility.

Kansas Senate passes 'religious freedom' bill for campus student groups

Or just any group based on Islam. If that happens, I assume next year, we'll see another religion-centric bill, except this one will ban religious groups at public universities from receiving tax dollars. That way, our courageous state leaders can keep the wrong kind of groups from receiving funds that might get funneled to potential terrorist activities.

These laws are getting so darn hard to write so that only the "right" religious groups and people get public funds for private use. Pesky constituents keep demanding fairness and openness.
