  • Expanding Medicaid
  • Fulfilling our KPERS responsibilities and funding.
  • Returning due process rights to all Kansas teachers.
  • Providing the transportation funds necessary to keep our highways safe and modern.
  • Legislation to ensure our elections are honest and easily accessible to all eligible Kansans.
  • Creating a fair system of taxation spread across ALL sectors of the Kansas economy.
  • Eliminating one of the highest sales taxes on food in the nation.
  • Reducing disproportionally high property taxes.
  • Ensuring women’s access to healthcare and control over their own bodies.
  • Making Kansas number one in wind and solar power generation.
  • Legalizing medical cannabis to give doctors an alternative to the use of opioids.
  • Reforming our criminal justice system and our overcrowded and expensive prison system.
  • Providing the necessary programs to keep our most vulnerable children safe and healthy.
  • Promoting changes to make state government cost effective, accessible and transparent.
  • Returning state support for the arts and the Creative Arts Industry
  • Common sense laws aimed at reducing gun violence.
  • Returning as much local control as possible to local governments.
  • EVERY Kansan being afforded their civil and human rights regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or political views.
  • Bipartisan cooperation in order to craft and pass the best possible legislation.
