State Senator Mark Taddiken and Kansas House Representative Sharon Schwartz participated in a public meeting on Saturday morning at the Marysville City Building.
Approximately 70 people listened to both elected officials summarized the actions currently taking place in the Kansas Legislature. Their statements were followed by a question and answer time. The state budget was one of the main topics. Both officials said they are required to “pay to play” when it comes to the state budget – meaning they must find the funds to pay for any programs they wish to add to the budget.
