What is O’Donnell’s beef with health department accreditation?

State Sen. Michael O’Donnell, R-Wichita, wouldn’t comment Monday on a bill he has proposed to prohibit county health departments from seeking national accreditation, other than saying it was prompted by “widespread concerns that many people have had.” What concerns? What people? Is this some Agenda 21 thing? Health officials are also puzzled. At least 12 health departments in Kansas, including Sedgwick County, have been working on becoming nationally accredited, the Kansas Health Institute News Service reported.
