Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer will stop in seven counties Tuesday, Sept. 23 to highlight the Brownback administration’s work to fight for Kansas and Kansans.

“The over-intrusive reach of the federal government is affecting the livelihoods of Kansas families,” said Dr. Colyer. “I am looking forward to talking with people at each stop to hear from them and share our efforts to protect the rights of Kansans.”

The Lt. Governor will focus on overreach that has resulted 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.
