Gov. Kelly Unveils New Proposals to Save Working Families Money, Build on First-Term Accomplishments
This week, Gov. Laura Kelly started to unveil her top policy proposals for a second term, called “The Road Ahead,” with the new series of priorities focusing on continuing to save working families money.
Building on the success and fiscal responsibility of her first term, Gov. Kelly outlined plans to “end the state’s tax on grocery purchases, expand by $50 million tax relief to the elderly and create a three-day, back-to-school sales tax holiday.” Gov. Kelly has already worked with both parties to balance the budget and cut $1 billion in taxes, including the state’s food tax. This also comes as Republicans like former Governor Mike Hayden continue to back Gov. Kelly, touting her steady leadership to get the state back on track from the failures of Sam Brownback and Derek Schmidt.
Here’s what Kansans across the state are reading on Gov. Kelly’s plans to keep saving money for working families:
Topeka Capital-Journal: “Gov. Laura Kelly has thrown her support behind a back to school sales tax holiday and tax relief for seniors as core areas of focus for a potential second term…”
Kansas Reflector: “Gov. Laura Kelly introduced the first piece of a second-term agenda Thursday anchored by proposals to immediately end the state’s tax on grocery purchases, expand by $50 million tax relief to the elderly and create a three-day, back-to-school sales tax holiday. Kelly said her plan would help every Kansas family save money without raising taxes, and ‘make our state the very best place to live, work and raise a family.’”
