WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A south-central Kansas Republican is retiring from his seat in the state House of Representatives and will not seek re-election this fall.

The Wichita Eagle reports Tuesday (https://bit.ly/RR8Pw5 ) that Rep. David Crum of Augusta has decided to leave the Legislature after serving for eight years.

Crum has served as chairman of the House Health and Human Services Committee and the Bob Bethel Joint Committee on Home and Community Based Services and KanCare Oversight. KanCare is the state’s privatized Medicaid program for the poor, elderly and disabled.

Crum is a retired optometrist. He joins House Taxation Committee Chairman Richard Carlson of St. Marys among Republicans not seeking re-election in the fall.
