ACTION ALERT

On April 27, the Kansas Legislature returns for the final portion of the 2016 Legislative Session. And they do so under grim conditions:  our state faces a $290 million dollar budget hole and no one knows how to fix it.  This will surely mean cuts to programs and services that people have a real need for and care deeply about.

One program that should for sure be on the table for balancing this lopsided budget is the death penalty. The death penalty represents the worst possible example of wasteful government spending, AND YET, leadership in the House and Senate is still hesitant to even consider the idea of ending Kansas’ death penalty.

Call Speaker Merrick, Senate President Wagle, and all of your area legislators today and tell them you don’t care about political games! Tell them there is no controversy about ending the death penalty! Tell them you care about Kansas, you’ve looked at the facts, and you’d rather see the death penalty abolished than more funding cuts for schools, roads, or other public services.  Make sure our leaders know that we want them to do the RIGHT thing.  It’s never wrong to do the right thing!
