Don’t hesitate to be an advocate! It’s important you inform legislators about your position on proposed legislation. Give them your reason why you support or do not support proposed legislation. Advocacy can be done by phone call or email – or spend time in the Statehouse and make an appointment to meet with your legislator.
It’s the waning days of the 2024 Legislative session when most of the proposed legislation begins to advance to General Orders in the House and Senate. Oftentimes it can be difficult to follow committee, conference committee and floor action.
There are numerous resources you may reference for the latest legislative action. Access the Kansas Legislative website at kslegislature.org. You may review bill content, bill action and view audio/video streaming of committee hearings and General Session proceedings.
An additional resource is the State Library. You may access their services in the following ways:
