MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR
House Bill No. 2325
An Act concerning insurance; relating to the healthcare provider insurance availability act; adding maternity center to the definition of “healthcare provider” contained therein; designating certain healthcare providers as being ineligible to purchase professional liability insurance from the healthcare stabilization fund; requiring such healthcare providers to maintain continuous professional liability coverage equivalent to that provided by the healthcare stabilization fund as a condition of licensure; amending K.S.A. 40-3401 and 40-3403a and repealing the existing sections.
Message to the Legislature of the State of Kansas
In August, Kansans voted against politicians in Topeka placing extreme restrictions on a woman’s freedom to make her own personal healthcare decisions.
This bill goes against the will of the voters by depriving women of access to their constitutional right. It is also misleading. The truth is, no taxpayer dollars go to the Health Care Stabilization Fund.
Therefore, under Article 2, Section 14(a) of the Constitution, I hereby veto House Bill 2325.
Laura Kelly, Governor
Dated April 24, 2023.
