Laura Kelly on Corporations
Experiment of no taxes on businesses drained our budget
Kelly slammed former Gov. Sam Brownback for his "experiment" of lower taxes and no taxes for certain types of businesses.
That approach drained the state budget and shortchanged Kansas schools, Kelly said.
She asked the friendly crowd to "join me in slamming the door shut tight and throw away the key on the Brownback years."
Kelly said Kobach would "double down" on that approach if he's elected governor.
"If you thought Brownback was bad,
Kris Kobach is Brownback on steroids," she said. That phrase has become a rallying cry among state Democrats, and many of the audience shouted "steroids" with Kelly.

Recharge the economy via growth in new industries
During the last 8 years the Kansas economy has been stagnant and lagging behind many neighboring states. The Brownback-Colyer administration dismantled many cutting edge programs just to fill the fiscal hole they created. It is critical that Kansas look
for new, creative ways to encourage growth in new industries. Laura will focus on making Kansas an innovative business destination and supporting new industries that leverage our state's strengths to let us grow.
