What health and human service advocates should know before the 2015 Legislative Session
In fiscal year 2014, Kansas tax receipts fell $688 million from the previous year, and first quarter fiscal year 2015 revenue is coming in below the 2014 level. What does this mean for our state’s safety net? Will essential services be cut? Will Kansas miss out on opportunities that create access to service for the state’s most vulnerable residents? What can you do to advocate for policy choices that enhance lives and improve well-being?
