Weekly Wrap-Up 3/27/15

Everyone says it's been a busy week at the Capitol, but it still feels to the public like nothing much is happening.  Dozens of bills were passed by the House and Senate, but nothing of much consequence since the block grant school funding proposal.  That was huge!    

Weekly Wrap-Up

Today is a kind-of-sad day all around…the news from the legislature is depressing, Governor Brownback is still in charge, and today is Jason Perkey’s last day as Executive Director of the Kansas Democratic Party.  The good news is that the Party elected a fine leadership team at Washington Days, county chairs are organizing events in their counties and everyone is looking towards the election in 2016.

The governor and his legislative allies are continuing the fight against public education by fast tracking a bill that eliminates per-pupil funding and allocates a lump sum block grant to individual schools. 


Senator Hensley's Washington Days Remarks

Before I begin my remarks, I would like to take this opportunity to call upon Kris Kobach, the most racist politician in America, to resign from office.

His recent outrageous comments about the President of the United States are despicable, beyond the pale, an embarrassment to the Republican Party and, more importantly, an embarrassment to the people of Kansas.

Sam told them that one of his goals was to be remembered as the best Governor in Kansas history.
