As is tradition, the minority party outlined their own legislative priorities during an official response to the State of the State. This year, the Kansas Legislature faces one of the most serious and significant situations the state has ever seen. The bottom line is: Governor Brownback’s agenda has failed, and it’s time for bipartisan efforts to correct the course in which our state is headed. During the 2016 legislative session I will focus on:
An economy that prioritizes attracting jobs in energy, manufacturing, research, and biosciences;
An open, transparent government that works for the people;
Efficient government that prioritizes public safety;
Prioritizing public schools and retaining Kansas teachers.
I will also be introducing a number of “Good Government” bills this session. Stay tuned!
