Hibbard’s House Highlites

Greetings,

This next week, the legislature will resume for what is known as “Veto” session. Veto session is a cleanup session where everything that is essential and hasn't been solved in the past must be dealt with. The governor vetoed one bill that will probably be addressed. This bill is known as the “abortion reversal bill.”

The only other thing that has to be done before we adjourn, is the budget. The budget has to be approved by both houses to determine spending from July 1, 2019 to July 1, 2020.

This past Saturday was a “Red Letter Day” for the 13th District. The past four years, the Lindamood family and the Perrier family in Greenwood County have held what has been known as ‘Day on the Ranch’ at their places in Greenwood County. They would bring in a Greyhound bus load of urban consumers from the Wichita area and share with them how the farm commodities that they eat are grown. After watching the success of this program, I asked them if we could bring a bus load of legislators to the Flint Hills of Kansas in Greenwood County and share this same information with them. After two years of planning, this all came together this past Saturday.
