|TUESDAY TOPICS: Money in Politics. The controversial Supreme Court decision Citizens United resulted in allowing vast amounts of money being poured into political campaigns with little to no transparency.

|League of Women Voters Presents: KanCare Expansion. In place of April's regularly scheduled Tuesday Topics, April's program will be a special presentation at the Evergreen Branch Library on a topic for which the League has taken a position. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) allows states to choose to expand Medicaid with the federal government paying most of the additional costs. Kansas is one of 18 states that chose not to take advantage of the expansion, leaving nearly 150,000 Kansans in health care limbo. A speaker from the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas will speak on the topic and describe how that organization is working to expand KanCare and what people can do to try to convince the Kansas legislature to expand KanCare. The room opens at 11:30am. Sack lunches are welcome; drinks will be provided.|
