State House Debates Legislature To Exempt Kansas From The Affordable Care Act

The state House will soon debate whether Kansas should join a compact of states seeking to exempt themselves from the federal health care law.

The bill on today's agenda would also let participating states remove themselves from other federal health regulations if Congress consents.

Critics call the measure symbolic and say Congress wouldn't approve such a compact.
