Catholic Conference Urges Legislators to Protect Services for the Most Vulnerable

April 20, 2010

On April 28, the Kansas Legislature will return to work in order to wrap up the 2010 legislative session.  Balancing the state’s budget will be the primary focus of what is called the “veto-session,” which is scheduled to last roughly two weeks.  The Kansas Catholic Conference has sent a letter to every member of the Legislature urging each of them to give special priority to those programs that serve the most vulnerable, in particular the disabled and the impoverished.  The letter also addresses the Conference’s other priorities for the session’s final days, including Pro-Life legislation and a bill regulating sexually oriented businesses.
