Legislative Update from Representative Shannon Francis

January 4, 2017 Newsletter
 

The 2017 Legislative session starts Monday,  January 9th.   Governor Brownback will deliver his State of the State Address to the Legislature at 5:00 pm January 10.  The State of the State will be live-streamed on www.governor.ks.gov if you would like to view it.   Hopefully the Governor will give us the first view of his budget proposal.  Our projected deficit this fiscal year is around $340 million and next year over $500 million.   Sources from the administration have intimated that it will require no major spending cuts, major tax increases or layoffs of state employees.

Capitol Office and Phone Number Change

My office this year will be 561W.  It will be on the Fifth Floor West Wing. My Capitol Phone Number this year will be (785) 296-7466 and my administrative assistant is Lisa Davis.

Committee Assignments

My committee assignments for the 2017 Legislative session are:
  • Vice Chairman of Transportation Committee
  • Taxation Committee
  • Water and Environment Committee
You can find information on the day, times and locations for these Committee meetings on my website at www.shannonfrancis.com/shannon-legislature/.

Pages

Being a page is a great opportunity for students to see our democracy in action.    Pages must be at least 12 years of age and are available for the months of January, February, and March.  You may contact my Office Assistant, Lisa Davis at (785) 296-7466 to set up a date.  Also the government and history teachers at our Middle Schools often set up trips for a limited number of students.  I am allowed 3 Pages per month.

Shadowing

Shadowing opportunities are available for high school and college students interested in political science.  Again, please contact Lisa to set up a date.

Constituent Services

Please reach out to me regarding issues with our state government that I can help with.  I do ask that you send the request to me by email.  My email address is:  Shannon.francis@house.ks.gov. This insures that I get the information correctly to the agency we are working with.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve. Please contact me anytime. My email is: Shannon.francis@house.ks.gov.
