KSGOP statement on State Finance Council meeting

TOPEKA, KS – The Kansas Republican Party today issued the following statement on today’s vote to prevent Governor Laura Kelly from unilaterally imposing any new lockdowns that would destroy our economy: 

Kansas GOP Chairman Mike Kuckelman commented: “It’s no wonder Laura Kelly’s economic recovery continues to trail every other state in America. Just yesterday she had to ask the federal government for a bailout from the devastating effects of her first statewide lockdown. Today, she nearly jeopardized the state’s entire emergency response to preserve her ability to shut us down again.

“Kansas Republicans continue to lead on solutions. More lockdowns are not the answer, and I’m pleased our legislative leaders have ensured that Kansas businesses will remain open, thriving, and creating new jobs to get Kansans back to work.”
