“I think saying no to the coal plants was a step in the right direction, so I think focusing on wind energy would be a good start.”

“I would say having a clearer vision for the energy industry in Kansas, and finding a solution that will supply both jobs and sustainable energy.”

“Financing education. Something has to be done about teachers’ salaries and getting schools the money they need.”

“I think it’s energy conservation and development. I think they should do more to promote mass transit and alternative sources of energy.”

Healthcare, smart wind energy, bringing the green industry to Kansas, beef up education funding if anyone is serious about economic development and about 90% of state legislators resigning due to poor performance.

Reptoids! They're everywhere I tell you.

...accepting KDHE's rejection of air quality permits for two coal-fired power plants in Holcomb, Kansas would be my guess.

Considering that majority of Kansan's support the decision, I would hope that those charged with enacting the will of the people would hear the calls for innovation in our energy infrastructure.

R-I, they're all Reptoids. The legislature should tax hyperbole & innuendo. Certain natterings on local forums could wipe out the state's deficit.

Deciding which conference, seminar, etc., etc., etc., they should attend at tax payers expense.

R_I - I am sure the doves can duck even those spinning blades - they always did when I tried to shoot one. :-)

A resolution congratulating the Jayhawks on their win over Virginia Tech.

Also, maybe some other stuff other people mentioned.

What is "legislature"? And why does it have to be concerned? I think we need to allocate more resources.

Marion (Marion Lynn) says: Taxes.

M.L. : I agree. In some cases they are much too low and too much has been exempted (by some accounts 90% or so.) Redo the mix and get more people paying their share.

The legislature should make Kansas competitive as an state for prospective workers and companies considering a move to our state.

Inact into law an employment nondiscrimination law that includes gay, transgender, and gender identity in the private sector. Likewise, nondiscrimination in housing, and public accomidations.

The buzz word around Alberta concerns health care legistation. The big question: will the legislature throw out the requirement of premium payments by Alberta residents? Those in the know believe that will be the number one election promise in the very near future. The premium payments are now $44/mnth.per person except for seniors who pay nothing. There are only 3 provinces in Canada that require residents to pay the premiums. Having an extra $44 per month in you pocket would buy a lot of votes.

Most important issue: "Hmmm...should I wear crimson or blue today?" (That game about gave me an apoplexy!)

How much dove would a wood duck dove...?

Kathy Theis-Getto 10 years ago

Crimson was my choice.

How much dove would a wood duck dove:?

Are you kidding? Everyone knows a wood duck would duck as much dove as a wood duck could duck if a wood duck could duck dove. Next you will want to know how many Hokies a Jahawk can whip - oh that's right! All of them!!!

Is a Jahawk an agreeable German bird? Because that would be cool.

Kathy Theis-Getto 10 years ago

Man, I knew I would take some flack for that. :-)
