Topeka - Sen. Ty Masterson, Chair of the Kansas Truth Caucus, issued the following statement:
"The Kansas House and Senate must act quickly to adopt a budget to keep government working to address the current COVID-19 crisis. We ask legislative leaders to allow conference committees to work through the weekend, so that the budget is ready to be acted upon Monday when the full Legislature returns.
We are in unprecedented times in our nation, and it is crucial we unify and focus on what is important - the health and safety of our citizens. In light of the Declaration of National Emergency, this is the only appropriate action to ensure the transmission of COVID-19 is limited throughout our state.”
