Kansas Supreme Court strikes down measure that allowed large church gatherings
The Kansas Supreme Court has ruled against a legislative effort to allow for houses of worship to hold large gatherings, upholding an earlier executive order from the governor.
In a per curiam decision released Saturday, the day before Easter, the state‚Äôs highest court concluded that the state Legislative Coordinating Council did not have the authority to revoke Governor Laura Kelly‚Äôs order that banned gatherings of more than 10 people.

The separation of powers in government, basically means no branch is more powerful than another. Therefore the legislature can pass a bill countermanding governors unconstitutional order. Furthermore, the court does not have the power to legislate law!
