On January 11, 2019, Governor Laura Kelly announced that she would appoint David Toland as Kansas Secretary of Commerce following her inauguration on January 14, 2019. Anti-abortion activists attempted to prevent Toland’s confirmation due to what they perceived as ties to George Tiller, an assassinated abortion provider from Wichita, Kansas who was killed while ushering in his church in 2009 by anti-abortion extremist Scott Roeder. Supporters of Toland noted that the only tie between the two is a small grant that “Thrive Allen County” obtained from a memorial fund posthumously established in Tiller’s name and that Toland’s position as Secretary of Commerce would have nothing to do with healthcare services or abortion. The grants in question had been made to assist pregnant women to stop smoking and to provide contraceptive services to low-income women intending to postpone or avoid becoming pregnant. In a hearing by the Commerce Committee held on March 20-21, 2019, Toland expansively answered probing questions from anti-abortion Senators including Pilcher-Cook as well as Molly Baumgardner, about Toland’s neighborhood improvement activities in the District of Columbia prior to his return to Kansas. The committee rejected his appointment by a vote of 6-5, sending the nomination to the full senate. Despite personal attacks leveled by conservatives and criticism of health grants from the fund established posthumously and named after Tiller, Toland was confirmed to the position by the Kansas Senate on April 1, 2019, by a vote of 23-14. He received support from all 11 Democratic senators, 11 Republicans, and the Senate’s lone independent. Toland survived an effort by the Kansas Republican Party, Kansans for Life, the Koch Industries-funded Americans for Prosperity and others, to derail his nomination.

He will serve the remainder of her term through January 2021 and said he would file for election to the seat.
In 2015, she introduced Senate Bill 56, which would remove legal protections from teachers who showed material that was deemed harmful to minors. The bill quickly became controversial, as opponents claimed the bill was overreaching and would stifle freedom of expression. On 25 February 2015, the bill passed the Senate an amended version of the bill on a 26-14 vote.
On the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in 2014, she arranged for a sonogram to take place in the Kansas Statehouse during a meeting of the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee. The ultrasound procedure was performed on two women by Cindy Patterson, a sonographer with Wyandotte Pregnancy Clinic, a crisis pregnancy center that delivered anti-abortion counseling to women considering abortion.
In January 2014, she introduced Senate Bill 302, which would have made surrogate motherhood a misdemeanor. Under the bill, anyone involved in hiring, or working as, a surrogate could be charged with a misdemeanor, punishable with up to a $10,000 fine and a year in the county jail. The law eventually died in committee.
In 2014, Pilcher-Cook introduced passage of sex education bill after one of her a parent objected to a poster which was placed in a middle school health classroom listing several sex acts. The bill would have required districts to collect signed consent forms from parents if they wanted their child to learn about sexual education.
