Yesterday marked the first day of the 2018 legislative session! It is so great to see my friends and colleagues again, some of whom I haven't seen since the end of session last year. I am energized and enthusiastic as we begin to work to solve the issues facing Kansas.
Throughout session, I will provide regular updates to highlight Capitol happenings, such as what is occurring in my committee assignments and important bills being discussed on the floor. I will also be continuing to host legislative forums this session - thanks to all who attended the full-house Shawnee forum this weekend! Please see the information for the next forum hosted by Sen. Dinah Sykes, Rep. Tom Cox and myself below:
Sunday, January 14th: 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
