What is your plan to deal with the Kansas Budget?

Reversing Governor Brownback’s disastrous tax plan has to be a top priority. Aside from that, taking advantage of federal programs that would provide money for our state.

What kind of changes do you support in rewriting the school funding formula? Do you support additional funding for Kansas schools?

I think the funding formula we used prior to Governor Brownback repealing it, although not perfect, was a far better plan than anything proposed currently.

What is your number one priority for the upcoming legislative session and how do you plan to address it?

Removing as many of Governor Brownback’s friends from the legislature, like my opponent, has to be the top priority. After that, dismantling the damage Governor Brownback has done to the state the last six years needs to be the next step taken.
