The legislature is officially adjourned until May 1st, completing my first regular session as your State Senator. I will, however, return April 26, 27 and 28 to meet with the House Appropriations and Ways and Means committees. It has been the most frustrating, humbling, and fulfilling few months. I anticipated needing to pick between the Senate and my City Council position, and I recently resigned my Overland Park seat so I can serve the 11th Senate position in a full time capacity. I will miss my Council friends and the great Overland Park staff.

Thank you for responding to my first legislative survey. Your answers have been very helpful in my decision-making this session on the big issues facing the Senate. Here are the results for budget cuts and taxes. Medicaid Expansion and Uncork results are included as part of those bill summaries below.
