May 16--MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes" (7 p.m. weeknights) will feature stories from Kansas all next week, part of the show's "All In America" series.

The taped packages will focus on:

--Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, "a Republican who explains why she tried to convince her Republican colleagues to embrace the Affordable Care Act and expand Medicaid. She also discusses how a conservative revolution in the Republican Party in Kansas has left more moderates feeling like they don't have a party anymore."

--Marquette Elementary in Marquette, southwest of Salina. The school will close permanently next week, a victim of budget cuts. Townspeople are worried about what the loss might mean for their community.

--Greensburg, the southwest Kansas community that was rebuilt as a "green town" after being leveled by a tornado in May 2007. Mayor Bob Dixson gives a tour "and talks about being a conservation-minded conservative."

--Pete Ferrell, who runs a commercial-scale wind farm on his cattle ranch and "talks about the challenges of cultivating renewable resources in the backyard of the powerful Koch Industries."

--Julie Burkhart, who opened an abortion clinic last year in the same building where physician George Tiller once practiced. Burkhart worked for Tiller, who was shot to death by a Kansas City abortion opponent in 2009. "The new clinic just celebrated its one-year anniversary, and Burkhart discusses the challenges of keeping it going."

--State Rep. Jim Howell, who talks about a state law he sponsored that voids all city and county gun restrictions. Wichita City Council member Janet Miller explains why she opposed the measure.
