Kansas Supreme Court rules in favor of temporary ban on mass gatherings

In a late evening decision the Kansas Supreme Court sided with Kansas Governor Laura Kelly saying the Legislative Coordinating Council (LCC) did not have the authority to override Gov. Kelly’s Executive Order 20-18 which temporarily banned mass gatherings of 10 or more people.

The LCC, which is composed of House and Senate leaders, voted along party lines Wednesday to throw out the Gov. Kelly’s order. Gov. Kelly’s administration filed the lawsuit against the state’s LCC Thursday evening.

With the court’s ruling the governor’s order will now be in place for Easter Sunday services.
