Top GOP Lawmakers killed Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s (D) mask mandate.
Kansas’ statewide mask mandate, already an exemption-filled patchwork, came to an end Thursday, canceled by top Republican lawmakers under a new law that makes it more difficult for health officials to keep COVID-19 precautions in place.
A group of leading legislators, known as the Legislative Coordinating Council, voted 5-2 along party lines to overturn Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly’s mask mandate hours after she reissued it to fulfill the requirements of the new law. One member of the eight-person panel, embattled Senate Majority Leader Gene Suellentrop, was absent for the vote conducted over video conference.
All mask mandates around the country should be repealed.
