Kansas Senator Garrett Love – Big News… I’m engaged and SB 193 passed the Senate

News from Senator Garrett Love

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It has been a very exciting week at the Capitol this past week. The biggest cause for this excitement for me was because I asked my best friend, Caley Onek [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=tmmyeneab&et=1104845278463&s=284&e=001y8Q3SJBb4xZsT-y8W2BmvxeToh9QF4TSiCyAZWPsHoCIpuRVVByrNuZSRhOK7c1uE3atrQu1gvcEaCdUD5QmbgT8JDRLkG7nEGXI2Q0MS9rVXV69nBPn8nhhRzl4M-PBZ0WzI3OEA7U=],to marry me and she said yes! As she is entirely too good looking, smart and talented for me, I would request you don’t tell her that! We are very excited. A lot of folks have been asking when the wedding will be, and my answer is always “whenever Caley wants it to be.” We will keep you updated and please keep us in your prayers.

MORE TOWNHALLS IN SW KANSAS
I look forward to coming home for townhalls this weekend. The listening tour schedule is to the right. These are very important in both updating you with what’s going  on in Topeka and for me in hearing from you on your thoughts & views on the issues before us.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Another big victory for Kansas taxpayers occurred this past week – the passage of SB 193 [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=tmmyeneab&et=1104845278463&s=284&e=001y8Q3SJBb4xY9RRedKInKN6VRwuKHSWHOFKKzLEdgv_VUOsoUQVSpv4SbS0lN2ZxcN9m-Xxhw4YV7ktt1mAiBD5sHna-DhO81M8EFCbq_3qY=]through the Senate at a margin of 39-0. This bill, that I introduced over a month ago, will crack down on waste, fraud and abuse in our government. Currently, many individuals filing to receive food sales tax refunds, which pays out over $51 million total, are able to state the number of dependents they will be receiving refunds  for. They do not have to verify that number in any way, and this is a big problem.
SB 193 [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=tmmyeneab&et=1104845278463&s=284&e=001y8Q3SJBb4xY9RRedKInKN6VRwuKHSWHOFKKzLEdgv_VUOsoUQVSpv4SbS0lN2ZxcN9m-Xxhw4YV7ktt1mAiBD5sHna-DhO81M8EFCbq_3qY=]fixes that. It would require those filing to receive these refunds to give the Social Security Number of their dependents. As Ronald Reagan would say, “Trust, but verify.”I will keep you updated as this bill will now move on to the House. If passed, it will save Kansas taxpayers millions of dollars.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
