Per the Court's decision:
We need not and do not decide the merits of other arguments advanced or attempted to be advanced by the parties—including whether a concurrent resolution passed by the Legislature can delegate its oversight authority under KEMA to the LCC; whether the statutes creating and enabling the LCC affect the KEMA analytical framework; whether due process is violated by the type of notice about the Governor's executive orders; or whether Executive Order 20-18 was a legally valid or constitutional exercise of the Governor's authority, despite its limitation on religious gatherings.
Per the article:
None of the Justices reached the question whether the Governor's order extending the shutdown to cover churches was inconsistent with the Kansas RFRA or the Kansas Constitution; that remains to be litigated in a separate case, which I expect will be filed shortly. I will also have a post later this morning on that very issue.
Pretty well sums it up.
