Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly
Kansas lawmakers dealt a blow to Gov. Laura Kelly last week, overriding her veto on a redistricting map that carves up minority communities near Kansas City. Now, the ACLU is suing. In an interview, Kelly talks about the map and a big mystery company she wants to bring to Kansas.
A veto override marked a low point last week for Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly, who objected to a new congressional map pushed through by Kansas Republicans. The override spurred a lawsuit Monday from the ACLU of Kansas.
Kelly spoke with Steve Kraske on KCUR’s Up to Date on Friday about this legislative year and how her time in office is going.
