NEWS RELEASE FROM THE OFFICE OF KANSAS GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK (CORRECTED VERSION)
Governor Sam Brownback signs four bills into law
Topeka - Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed four bills into law Tuesday.
“The Health Care Compact will allow states to restore and protect Medicare for generations to come,” said Governor Brownback. “Obamacare is the most serious attack on Medicare and seniors since the program’s inception. By cutting $700 billion out of Medicare, President Obama and his allies made a policy statement that ideology is more important than protecting seniors. I oppose any effort at the state level to reduce Medicare benefits or coverage for Kansas seniors. I signed HB 2553 with this understanding and will work to make it a reality when the compact becomes effective.”
By law, the Kansas governor has 10 calendar days to sign the bill into law, veto the bill or allow the bill to become law without his or her signature.
