Governor Brownback has made Growing the Kansas Economy one of the top priorities of his administration. He is an advocate of free markets because he understands that they are best suited to achieve liberty and prosperity for all. This economic growth in turn leads to job creation, growing wages, and a higher quality of life all Kansans.
Few things are more important to our future than a quality education for Kansas students. Governor Brownback recognizes this. School funding has increased by over 10% since he took office, and the State of Kansas now spends over $4 Billion on K-12 education. This record level of funding is aimed at putting students first, and Kansas students attend the 10th best school system in the country.
Kansas has been blessed with fertile soil and an abundance of natural resources. Preserving these resources is central to Governor Brownback’s vision for the future of Kansas.
The American Constitution and the Kansas Constitution both guarantee the citizens of our great state certain inalienable rights and freedoms. Governor Brownback has fought to protect these freedoms during his time in office. He has signed a number of bills designed to protect the 2nd Amendment rights of Kansans, including a bill signed in 2015 that guarantees each Kansan’s constitutional right to carry a firearm. A devout Catholic, Governor Brownback has been a staunch defender of religious liberty. He issued an Executive Order guaranteeing the religious liberty of all Kansans in the face of burdensome government regulation.
Governor Brownback wants to make Kansas the best state in America to raise a family. While family structure has long come under assault in our nation, Governor Brownback has fought to protect Kansas families against this assault, seeking to strengthen families and give them the best opportunity to thrive in our society.
