SILVER HAIRED LEGISLATURE HOLDS BI-ANNUAL ORGANIZATION MEETING

The Kansas Silver Haired Legislature held their bi-annual organization meeting on Wednesday, May 10th, in Salina.  The meeting, held each May in odd-numbered years,  is for the purpose of electing officers, discussing proposed ByLaw changes (if any), meeting the new members recently installed in the March election, and bringing all members up to speed on the SHL resolutions currently under consideration by the Kansas Legislature.

The officers elected for the next two years include:  Speaker – Don Woodard, SHL delegate from Shawnee County (Auburn-Topeka); Speaker Pro Tem – Jane Gingles, SHL delegate from Clay County (Clay Center); and Floor Leader – Ada Bogart, SHL delegate from Ford County (Dodge City).  In addition, the Executive Board met following the regular meeting of the full SHL body, and elected the following officers:  President – Jay Rowh, SHL delegate from Mitchell County (Beloit); and Vice-President – Thomas Gordon, SHL delegate from Wyandotte County (Kansas City).

The SHL full body discussed, and ultimately passed, a change to the ByLaws.  Previously, all officers of the Silver Haired Legislature were restricted to two consecutive two-year terms.  With the passage of the change to the ByLaws, an officer is now able to serve more than two consecutive terms.  The change was proposed by the ByLaws Committee, and passed the full body with unanimous support.

On the membership front, a total of 39 new members were elected in the recent spring elections, bringing the current membership to 102, up from 89 at last fall’s Annual Session.  Full membership for the SHL is 125, which includes one delegate from each of the 105 counties of Kansas, plus an additional five delegates each from the four largest counties (Sedgwick, Wyandotte, Johnson, and Shawnee).

Speaker Don Woodard discussed the standing of the current proposals, as voted on at the October, 2016 Annual Session, which are being deliberated in this year’s session of the Kansas Legislature.  Two of the proposals were actually passed during this year’s legislative session – the resolution for supporting the repeal of the 2012 Income Tax Law and exemption from Kansas Income Tax for 330,000 LLC’s across the state, as well as the proposal supporting Medicaid Expansion for Kansas.  However, both these measures were vetoed by Governor Sam Brownback, and the legislature failed to override each of these measures by a scant three votes short of the necessary 2/3 favorable margin.  Two other resolutions – SHL support for restoration of the $2.1 million cut to the Senior Care Act (the law that allows elderly Kansans to remain in their own homes for an average assistance of $240.00 a month), as well as a recommendation for the state to make their full required payment to the KPERS pension fund – are still being debated by the Kansas Legislature as they work on next year’s budget.

The next meeting of the Silver Haired Legislature will be in July, when the Executive Board will meet to discuss which issues will be presented at the Annual Session, held in October in Topeka.  With over a half-million Kansas Seniors living in our state, the SHL works to give them a voice with our elected state officials.  Please share your thoughts with your local SHL delegate, as we work for the benefit of all Kansans, especially the Senior Citizens.
