Kansas Action for Children President & CEO Shannon Cotsoradis
responds to latest round of budget cuts, sweeps

“While the full impact of Gov. Brownback’s latest budget cuts are not yet clear, it is clear Kansas children and families continue to foot the bill for an unsustainable tax plan. It’s difficult to believe that access to children’s health coverage won’t be put at risk by today’s actions when we know Kansas’ youngest children have been dropping off the state’s Medicaid rolls at an alarming rate since 2012. It’s also disappointing that further eroding Kansas’ primary source of funding for early learning programs is described by the administration as ‘not a big deal’, when an overwhelming amount of evidence indicates exactly the opposite.”
