TAX LID on Cities, Townships, Counties must be removed

This GOOD attempt by Legislature to control tax spending has caused more problems than good, now every public entity pushes their cap to the top on tax budget every year and it is recommended by their tax auditors.


Rural Health Care

Rural hospitals are one of the most important business issues we have in Kansas, The aging population in rural Kansas presents challenges to accessibility of primary care and specialized medicine,  We need to support them by less regulation, more business flexibility, and support of Direct Primary Care plans, which in turn will determine how much employment we have in the communities around the hospitals, We should not have to increase income, property and sales taxes to help them succeed.
