Message to the Legislature of the State of Kansas

Companies have made it clear that they are not interested in doing business with states that discriminate against workers and their families. By stripping away rights from Kansans and opening the state up to expensive and unnecessary lawsuits, these bills would hurt our ability to continue breaking economic records and landing new business deals.

I’m focused on the economy. Anyone care to join me?

Therefore, under Article 2, Section 14(a) of the Constitution, I hereby veto Senate Bill 26, Senate Bill 180, Senate Bill 228, and S. Sub. For House Bill 2138.

Laura Kelly, Governor

Dated April 20, 2023.
