Mary Pilcher-Cook on State Sovereignty: Senate Judiciary Health Care Freedom Amendment hearing

There will be a Senate Judiciary Health Care Freedom Amendment (SCR 1626) subcommittee hearing this Thursday morning, March 11, at 8:00 a.m.

The focus will be on the constitutional aspects of the proposed amendment.  Therefore, I have invited two constitutional scholars to give testimony.

I have been given some indication that Subcommittee Chairman John Vratil has invited several legal professors to testify as well.

Because the hearing will be limited to an hour, and it would be best to give the committee members time to ask questions of these scholars, it would be good if we didn’t add to the list of those who would testify.  We already have a good base on the health care aspect of the measure, because the hearing in front of the joint House and Senate Health Committees was excellent.

House Concurrent Resolution 5032
Senate Concurrent Resolution 1626


  • This proposed constitutional amendment was referred to the House Health committee (HCR 5032) and both the Senate Health committee and the Senate Judiciary committee (SCR 1626).
  • There has been one hearing in front of a joint House and Senate Health Committee.
  • SCR 1626 was passed out of the Senate Health committee with no recommendation.
  • SCR 5032 was passed out of the House Health committee with a favorable recommendation.
  • There will be a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing this Thursday.


  • Senate Judiciary subcommittee final action.
  • House floor general orders and final action.

Thank you for staying informed!

In honor of your liberty,

P.S. This is the Health Care Freedom Amendment, a proposed constitutional amendment to the Kansas Constitution, which will preserve the freedom of Kansas citizens to provide for their health care without government control.
