Let’s have a great turnout to show legislators that Kansas small businesses do care about this issue! Bring your families, employees, vendors, and friends. The Committee has new members this year, who are not familiar with this legislation and the amount of public interest. A big turnout sends a strong message.
BE THERE! RSVP for the Legislative Lunch and Hearing.
