October 30, 2019 - 10:11 AM

Kansas Senate Majority Leader Jim Denning has offered an important plan to expand Medicaid coverage in the state. A Senate committee endorsed it last week.

Conservative Republicans don’t like it. “The fact we’re trying to expand it as Republicans is unfortunate,” said state Sen. Ty Masterson, a Republican from Andover.

Gov. Laura Kelly, a Democrat who says expanding Medicaid is her top priority, is also a skeptic. “We need a Medicaid expansion plan that is simple, effective and sustainable for Kansas,” she said in a statement.
