Kansans should be able to support a family with their wages and benefits, and we should all be able to retire with dignity. I joined a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers to eliminate the food sales tax and provide property tax relief. Cutting these taxes will help give families more money to buy food, school supplies, or just pay the bills. I will keep working to be a good steward of our taxpayer dollars.
We are in a great financial position thanks to measured, responsible budgeting and great economic gains. Kansas is the best place to live and work; we must continue this level of responsibility to our taxpayers while maintaining the core functions of our state government.
