Kansas needs a fair, adequate, and equitable K-12 funding formula that maximizes the educational outcome for all Kansas students. The Kansas legislature needs to develop a new funding formula that ensures all students receive an equal opportunity education.
Our state should support a balanced and stable tax policy that is fiscally responsible, promotes a pro-growth business environment, and maintains essential services for all citizens of our state.
The Kansas Legislature and the Brownback administration should discontinue any further diversion of funds from the Kansas Department of Transportation. Kansas should fully fund the implementation and completion of the T-Works highway program.
All Kansans realize that economic development programs are necessary tools needed to retain and attract businesses, and to create jobs throughout Kansas. These programs create a strong economy, a qualified workforce that attracts businesses and talent to Kansas.
Kansas should recognize the value of excellence in higher education. Adequate funding for our universities, community colleges, and technical schools should be a top priority. A strong higher education environment promotes a successful business climate and enhances workforce development.
A strong safety net of social services is necessary in our state to address the needs of the poor, the sick, the disabled, and the elderly who needs an extra measure of help in their daily lives.
