Kansas lawmakers debate bill to restore due process for teachers

Rep. Stephen Handy discusses his bill to allow a court to remove a weapon from a dangerous person

The Senate education committee voted Monday to make amendments - including more funding cuts - to the main House education proposal. But it faces stiffer opposition in the House, although that chamber like the Senate is in Republican hands. "We were told that would fix the problem". The measure now moves to the House. The resolution will have to go back to the Senate before it's passed. Bryan King, R-Green Forest - a Medicaid expansion foe - to postpone action indefinitely on the bill until a special session is called by Gov. Asa Hutchinson later this fiscal year. I'm still waiting for someone to explain how you decide-and who decides-what it means to have only one subject. The four previous fiscal sessions have ranged from 25 days in 2010 to 38 days in 2014. Arkansas is the third state allowed to impose a work requirement on Medicaid. The program's income cutoff is at 138 percent of the poverty level, which is $16,753 for an individual or $34,838 for a family of four.

"After all the legislation we've worked hard on — sent across the aisle and worked hard for the ratepayers in SC — and that's all they have sent back to us", he said.

Two of the vacant seats - formerly held by Sen. "Not because of filing deadlines for reelection".

Those changes include moving new and current nonhazardous state workers from hybrid cash balance plans with guaranteed 4 percent returns into ones that would not guarantee a return but would guarantee the people would not lose money.

"The reality is this, I am saving the pension system". "I'm so happy, and I'm confident that it's going to make it through the Senate. because I think we can all agree no one wants to see a 13-year-old getting married". "Why should I or anyone else have to live by that?" said Malachy Grange, who came out to back the measure.

Rep. Brenda Dietrich, a former Topeka school superintendent, backed the plan but said care should be taken not to turn schools into fortresses. He also said he doesn't want to have people worry about the possible shutdown of the department.

"This Legislature will be the first to deliver in that time frame in a long time", he said.

Armstead said Medicaid would be "last on the list" for cuts.

"Gideon, of all people, stepped up, touched probably by the Good Lord, and reminded me of what I stood for over, over and over", the governor said.

In 2017, the Division of Medical Services appropriation cleared the Senate in a 27-to-1 vote.

Some of those who attended strongly opposed the bills being proposed.

There are also proposals to restrict the sale of high-capacity magazines and ban devices such as bump stocks and trigger cranks.

A handful of Republicans voted against the bill because it would limit gun rights in that way. Most of who voted for the measure weren't spotted in the tunnel.

"This is serious, serious business that affects people's lives, every single day", said Senate Minority Leader Nikki Setzler, D-Lexington.

"The early prediction was that the general assembly would not pass the DHS appropriation and Arkansas Works".
