productive partnership between the Unified Government, Kansas Legislature and
Congress which protects local government funding and respects local
control is the primary goal of Unified Government lobbying efforts.
Relations Director Mike Taylor serves as the staff lobbyist for the Unified
Government, among a host of other duties. Each year, the Unified Government Board of Commission approves a prioritized list of issues before the Kansas Legislature. Some involve proposed changes in state law that would improve the UG's ability to provide quality service to its residents .
Government is also a member of the League of Kansas Municipalities and the
Kansas Association of Counties. In addition to educational training, hosting
conferences, advising municipalities on best practices and legal issues, both
organizations engage in lobbying the Kansas Legislature on issues affecting
Government and the Board of Public Utilities, the municipally-owned electric
and water utility, contract with EnGage LLC to interact with the Kansas
Congressional delegation in Washington, DC. We have provided a list of Legislative Agendas organized by year. If you did not find what you were searching for or have trouble downloading a file, please contact Mike Taylor at the number listed above.
