KS Senate Members Urged to Rethink KTEC Cuts

Members of the Kansas Senate are being urged to preserve a state economic development agency that's currently on the budgetary chopping block. Governor Sam Brownback wants to fold the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation, or KTEC (KAY-tek), into the Department of Commerce and the Kansas Board of Regents. But Nitrite Solutions C-E-O Jeremy Jones says KTEC is worth keeping around.

Governor Brownback, however, says Kansas has too many stand-alone economic development agencies. Former Governor Kathleen Sebelius also tried to give KTEC the axe, but lawmakers voted to continue funding for it.
