Uncertainty is the word of the week, if not the next few months. We have been working diligently on the business of Kansas, which I have detailed below as my normal newsletter. However, I know this is not normal. The governor has prohibited gatherings of more than 50 people, and there are 125 members of the House of Representatives, not to mention the staff required to run the chamber.
Each year, the budget is the only “must-pass” bill, and those negotiations are underway. Considering the average age of the legislature, most of us meet the high-risk threshold. Not to mention, like you, many of us have loved ones with compromised immune systems. The House passed a resolution last week to extend the governor’s budgetary authority beyond her current declaration. However, we may need to do more. I’m not sure what that looks like, but will keep you apprised when we know something final.
