This evening, on a voice vote, the Kansas House of Representatives moved SB 210 to final action. Debate on the bill was relatively short, with a handful of representatives voicing opposition to the bill. Those who indicated their opposition included Representatives Crum, McLeland, Rhoades and O’Hara. Representatives who spoke in support of the bill included Representatives Bethell, Colloton, Henry, Keigerl and Ballard.
Opposition to the bill was mostly focused on the fear of increasing the Federal deficit.
The House will most likely take final action on SB 210 tomorrow (Thursday). Final action is the last legislative step for SB 210 before being sent to the Governor.
