TOPEKA, Kansas: Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate are teaming up to propose a health care amendment that supposedly would exempt them from a national government proposed and managed health-care reform.
Proponents stated that the resolution is necessary to keep the state’s constitutional rights and maintain personal freedom and liberty in the state. According to state’s government, the amendment would need to gain two-thirds of approval from both legislative branches in order to place it on the 2010 ballot. The amendment is set to be introduced in each chamber during next year’s 2010 session.
