On Monday, May 3, the Kansas Legislature reconvenes for a proposed nine-day wrap-up session. Often referred to as “veto” session, the next week will see the legislature finalize the state budget and attempt to override any vetoes issued by Governor Laura Kelly since the legislature went on its annual spring break back on April 9.
Senate President Ty Masterson (R-Butler County) and his allies have made it clear they will attempt to override the governor’s veto of their anti-trans hate bill, SB55.
We are collecting “signatures” for these letters – one for Kansas businesses, one for Kansas healthcare professionals (including mental health), and one for faith leaders in Kansas, to support Governor Kelly’s veto of this harmful bill.
If you’d like your name or business added to a letter, email our Director of Community Outreach, Liz Hamor – firstname.lastname@example.org. Please tell her which letter(s) you want to “sign”, include your name/business name and credentials the way you want them to appear on the letter, and the city or county in which you serve.
We’ll continue to fight to ensure SB55 does not become law, and we need you to continue to fight with us!
