Kansas council to vote on emergency COVID-19 extension

A mostly Republican state council is scheduled to vote on whether to extend an emergency COVID-19 declaration that is set to expire on Tuesday.

The declaration was ordered earlier by Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly to allow the state to provide services in response to the pandemic.

The State Finance Council will vote on the extension by today.

Kelly warned on Thursday that Kansans will not be able to access services they need to ensure their health and safety if the extension is not granted.
