Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly on Wednesday devoted as much attention to Medicaid expansion as any other issue .
Ive made no secret that expanding this program is one of my top priorities, she said in her first State of the State address.
But no issue, including school funding, will prove to be as big a test for the new governor as this one. Conservative leaders in both the Kansas House and Senate have stacked committees that deal with this issue with anti-expansion lawmakers.
