Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer continues his tour of Kansas with stops in Butler, Bourbon and Miami counties on Thursday, Sept. 25.

During each stop, Colyer will visit with local residents and highlight the Brownback administration’s work to fight for Kansas and Kansans.

“The overreach of the federal government is threating the livelihood of Kansas residents,” said Dr. Colyer. “I enjoy the opportunity to hear from Kansans, understand their concerns and talk with them about how we are protecting their rights.”

The Lt. Governor will focus on overreach that has resulted in increased utility costs as well as threats to business caused by proposed new EPA regulations that would affect ponds and ditches and the listing of the Lesser Prairie Chicken as a threatened species.

Thursday’s visits include:

Butler County – 8-9 a.m., visit and tour DJ Engineering of Augusta;
Bourbon County – 12:30-1:30 p.m., Meet and greet lunch with the Chamber of Commerce at McDonald’s, Ft. Scott.
Miami County – 2:30-3:30 p.m., visit residents at Paola Senior Center in Paola.

All events are open to the public and media.
