On the legislative front, the KRCS has participated in several activities. On Feb. 12th, Karen Schell and Suzanne Bollig travelled to the Capitol in Topeka and provided testimony at the committee hearing on HB2184 and HB2184. If enacted, these bills would direct the Secretary of Health and Environment to create a state plan for comprehensive treatment of COPD.
On Feb. 20th, the KRCS held its annual Legislative Day at the Capitol. Our sponsor was Representative Don Hill of Emporia. KRCS members visited legislative offices of key committee members and an educational display and PFT screening was provided in the rotunda area. If you have not had the opportunity to visit the Capitol since renovation has been completed, you should take the opportunity to make a visit.
