Government should always be accountable to the people. Accountability begins with transparency. We have worked to ensure that the actions undertaken by the state government are clearly explained and grounded in the equal application of the law. We have and will continue to work to Reform State Government:
- Created the Office of the Repealer, which takes recommendations on outdated state regulations and laws to eliminate.
- Eliminated two cabinet agencies- the Kansas Health Policy Authority and the Juvenile Justice Authority.
- Balanced the budget from a $500 million projected deficit in FY 2012 to a more than $750 million surplus in FY 2013.
