EL UPDATE – Summer 2017

We wanted to share with you some of the coverage surrounding the 2018 gubernatorial race and those individuals that have expressed interest so far in being the next Governor of the great state of Kansas at this point. We encourage you to take a minute to listen to this story entitled “One Year Before Primary, Kansas Governor’s Race Attracts A Crowd of Candidates,” by Stephen Koranda on KCUR.

Meanwhile, agency work at KDOT continues with the announced $2.6M in approved bids in July. Read the KDOT announcement here and also be sure to see the request for comment on the statewide transportation improvement program for FFY 2018-2021.

Additionally, be sure to check out the recent piece from All Things Considered entitled “Infrastructure Investment Trends 10 Years After Bridge Collapse,” by David Schaper.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the new quarterly EL Insider Newsletter. We hope that this newsletter offers a great way for you to stay abreast of what’s happening during the “off season” when the legislature heads home from Topeka. Because transportation is important, there is always information to share and we are excited for this new format.

Have a great week and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns or ideas! I can be reached at tara@economiclifelines.com or by phone at (785) 969-9270.
