In this week’s audio update of “Under The Dome”, KNEA Director of Communications Marcus Baltzell talks with Tim Graham, KNEA Director of Government Relations and Legislative Affairs, about the activities during the third week of the 2024 session.

This week’s episode includes discussion about a potential veto of a tax bill that has already passed both chambers and is sitting on Gov. Laura Kelly’s desk. The flat tax portion of the legislation is particularly concerning for those on the lower end of the economic spectrum. The continued existence of the Special Education Taskforce is expected to be in the spotlight early during the week of Jan. 29. Tim also gives a special “shoutout” to Gov. Kelly and the members of the various labor unions who gathered at the Statehouse this week for a rally to show their solidarity for public educators and other workers.
