Kansas Democrats Unveil Jobs Proposals

Democrats in the Kansas Legislature have unveiled their jobs proposals for this session. The bills would require state agencies to make efforts to buy American-made and Kansas-made goods when making purchases. Paul Davis, from Lawrence, is the top Democrat in the House. He touted a bill stipulating that state contractors must attempt to hire Kansans first before bringing in out-of-state workers.

Republicans have big majorities in both chambers, but Davis says he believes the bills could get support from both sides of the aisle.
