Next week, the Kansas Legislature will be considering the Kansas Judicial Branch's budget. The judiciary's specific requests are aimed at replacing lost revenues, funding additional positions, and proving long overdue raises to employees and judges.
The TBA Board of Directors encourages our members to advocate for adequate funding of our judiciary. One important way you can do this is by contacting your own legislators and other legislative leaders. You can find who represents you at ksleglookup.org and you can also find contact information at the following link: http://www.kslegislature.org/li/b2021_22/members/.
Second, share the following op-eds that appear in today’s KC Star and Wichita Eagle on social media—particularly Twitter—with the hashtags #kscourts and #ksleg.
