The following statement is from Governor Laura Kelly regarding the budget vote:

“For many of our neighbors struggling with illness or disability, time is something they do not have. Due to the failure tonight, thousands of Kansans will go without health care for another year. The Kansas House Democrats stood strong together against pressure, threats, and coercion in an effort to help more Kansans get access to affordable healthcare. I commend them for their determination on behalf of our families.”
