2018 Highlights

2018 was the first year electricity prices became an issue in the Kansas statehouse.  The highlight of the 2018 session was Senate passage of SCR 1612, a resolution highlighting Kansas' challenges with electric rates.  

We appreciate the senators that voted for the resolution and getting the ball rolling.   It was also good to see media coverage of the issue.
