Plan future 3 millionth Kansan: education, farming, & water

The 2.9 million souls that call Kansas home cherish a way of life that honors family, values education and embraces positive change. In fact, by the end of this decade, for the first time in our history, Kansas' population will surpass three million people. When that three millionth Kansan is born, what kind of state will we have built for her?

Kansans are decent. Kansans are honest. If you ask them what kind of state they want to build for our three millionth Kansan, they'll tell you:

ROZes: Rural Opportunity Zones with income tax waiver

Growing the Kansas economy is my first priority. We must take bold steps today to create economic growth tomorrow. In saying this, however, let me be clear; we cannot government-program or borrow our way into a stronger state economy. We cannot hope for the best and paper over the worst.

Rural Opportunity Zones, or ROZes, will provide a state income tax waiver for any individual relocating from out-of-state into any participating county that has experienced double digit percentage population decline.
