Governor Sam Brownback stated that Kansas will return a $31.5 million federal grant intended to aid in the creation and establishment of a health insurance exchange. This decision comes amid pressure from Republican lawmakers to block implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Despite the opposition, moderate lawmakers are urging for locals to run and operate the health insurance exchange, instead of the federal government. Several resolutions opposing implementation of the federal health law and the return of associated funds will be considered in the coming weeks.
