Kansas: effort to change merit selection for state’s supreme court unable to get 2/3rds majority; final vote 68-54 (84 votes needed)

It appears that the Kansas House was not able to obtain the necessary 2/3rds vote required to advance to voters a plan to end merit/commission based selection for the state’s supreme court. The final vote on HCR 5005 was 68-54, falling short of the 84 votes needed.
