District 107 Constituents,

It has been a busy week in Topeka. Turn-Around day, or the last day that bills can be passed by their house of origin is Saturday, February 24th. Additionally, the debate and number of bills being considered by the house is rapidly increasing. As your representative, it has been my philosophy to represent all of you by promoting issues that improve the quality of life and lessen the government burden.

This week I had the privilege of hearing in committee….and meeting with the following constituents…..

One of the issues that I was proud to support in the House of Representatives this week was an act that allowed Kansas residents who move out of the state and then return within 60 months be considered state residents for tuition purposes at any of the state educational institutions. This is a great opportunity for talented students to come back to Kansas. Kansas prospers when we are able to have our best and brightest receive education in Kansas.

As always, please contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns. I am her to serve YOU!
