KAC President John Wilson writes about a change in tone at the statehouse for Gannett news outlets in Kansas.

"At Kansas Action for Children, our team spends about 80 hours a week monitoring committee meetings and floor debate at the Statehouse. We track bills and legislative action on the issues we care about. This session, we’re doing that work remotely to protect our health and the health of others.

"Three weeks into the session, we can identify most lawmakers just by the sound of their voice. But it’s not just their words coming through loud and clear on the recently upgraded audio and video stream — it’s also their tone."
