    AG Schmidt statement on today’s conflicting employer mandate rulings

    TOPEKA – (July 22, 2014) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued the following statement on two federal appeals court rulings today on the “Obamacare” employer mandate:

    “Today’s rulings move this important legal dispute one step closer to final resolution. Our interest is to ensure the IRS follows the law and Kansas obtains the benefit it anticipated when state policy makers chose not to establish a state-run health insurance exchange. Congress might not have expected so many states to decline to establish an exchange under the Affordable Care Act, but that misjudgment cannot justify allowing the IRS to effectively rewrite the statute to satisfy policy and political objectives. We will continue to represent the state’s interest as this litigation proceeds to its next stage, perhaps ultimately to the U.S. Supreme Court.”

    In Halbig v. Burwell, No. 14-5018, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit struck down the IRS rules implementing the federal subsidies and employer mandate in states that opted not to set up a state-based exchange. In King v. Burwell, No. 14-1158, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit upheld the same IRS rules.

    Attorney General Schmidt led briefs in support of the plaintiffs in both cases in February. The plaintiffs in the Halbig case included Community National Bank, based in Seneca.

    Hunters will be required to draw for access to this field for Sept.1 only 

    PRATT – It’s no gamble to say that Sept. 1, opening day of dove season, holds an important spot on most Kansas hunters’ calendars. The weather is nice, birds are in flight, and it’s the first opportunity of the season to trade a clay target for the “real deal.” Although an exciting time, the overwhelming popularity of this season can mean some public hunting lands will see a significant temporary increase in traffic as the season kicks off. This increase in traffic is a good sign birds are out, but it also can pose safety issues. Last year, for example Clinton Wildlife Area’s Dove Field No.1 drew nearly 80 hunters on the 7-acre wheat and sunflower plot on opening day.

    To maintain a safe environment for all hunters, Dove Field No. 1 at Clinton Wildlife Area will be placed into the special hunts program for opening day only. Ten open dove hunt permits will be issued for Sept. 1, with five being designated for the morning hunt and five for the evening hunt.

    Morning hunts will open one-half hour before sunrise and close at 11:30 a.m. Evening hunts will begin at 12 p.m. and close at sunset. Hunters may apply for both hunts but will only be drawn for one. Following opening day, hunters do not need to draw access to hunt the field. Non-toxic shot is required for dove hunting on Dove Field No. 1.

    For more information, visit and click “Hunting / Special Hunts Information,” or contact area manager Jason Tarwater at (785) 887-6882.
