Kansas Legislature Returns to Topeka  Thursday for Special Session - Act Now

(6-20-16)  The Kansas Legislature returns to Topeka for a Special Session Thursday, June 23.  Legislators will attempt to resolve the recent Kansas Supreme Court decision ordering changes to the funding plan for K-12 schools.  While some legislators prefer to move funds around to meet the Court’s order to provide more equitable funding distribution between wealthy and poor school districts, others suggest that $38 million should be added to the formula.  This is no small challenge in a year that State revenues continue to come in below agency forecasts.   

UnCork Kansas hopes to gain new traction for their proposal to generate extra funds by paying enhanced liquor license fees in order to sell strong beer, wine and spirits.  They claim their proposal would raise $40 million. 

This is a significant threat to Kansas small businesses and all retailers should be in contact with their legislators.   Keep us informed of your communications. 

KABR will be attending the legislative meetings of the Special Session and will keep you informed through our e-newsletters.

Kansas Retailers Take Action

The paid lobbyists in Topeka have nothing over local businesses and voters when it comes to supporting local legislators.  But it takes work.

When it comes to sharing your message – do not forget to involve your friends, vendors, customers, pastors, community leaders and others.  Many retailers have been very successful in gaining petition signatures, generating phone calls to the hotline, and generating emails through http://keepksjobs.org

Revenue growth exceeding 102% would go into a budget stabilization fund (replacing the need for 7.5% ending balance) and growth exceeding 103% would go into a tax reduction fund.  This is similar to the current policy designed to limit growth of government expenditure to 2%, but provides for a reserve budgetary fund before pursuing further tax reduction.
