TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas will allow its state Farm Bureau to offer health care coverage that doesn’t satisfy the Affordable Care Act.

Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly decided Friday not to block a state-level effort by Republicans to circumvent former President Barack Obama’s signature health care law.

The proposal was part of an insurance bill Kelly declined to sign or veto, meaning it becomes law. It includes provisions that exempt the Farm Bureau from state insurance regulations for the health care coverage it offers to its members.
