The following statement can be attributed to Governor Laura Kelly:

“I ran for Governor on the promise that I would fully fund our schools. And for the third year in a row, we’ve kept that promise, delivered on education, and did right by our kids. As we continue to recover from the global pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we support Kansas students by giving them every opportunity to thrive and succeed.

“While I disagree with parts of this bill, I’ve always sought bipartisan solutions, and I will continue working across the aisle to get things done for Kansas families.”
