BROWNBACK SIGNS PETITION FOR STATE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
Topeka – Senator Sam Brownback announced his support today for Senate Concurrent Resolution 1626 and House Concurrent Resolution 5032. He added his name to the list of Kansans calling on the Kansas Legislature to present the proposed constitutional amendment to a vote of the people.
“With the U.S. House adoption of a federal government health care plan, we must explore all avenues to preserve health care freedom. There are many problems within our country’s health care system that need to be addressed. Our goal should be to provide meaningful reform that lowers the cost and improves access to health care. However, the legislation before Congress does not take our country down that path.
It is important the state of Kansas protects its citizens from the federal government’s abuse of its constitutional authority. If approved by Kansas voters, a constitutional amendment establishes a foundation for legal challenges to any health care mandate passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.”
