KEEP KANSANS IN BUSINESS Local businesses are the lifeblood of our communities
Keep Kansans in Business is a community of citizens, businesses, civic and social organizations and others, dedicated to ensuring Kansan-owned local businesses are not forgotten when policymakers create and change business and tax policies.
Nearly 84% of all Kansas Businesses are small-businesses. These are the engine of the Kansas economy.
These businesses employ many Kansans, are essential to their communities - especially in rural areas - and are an important tax base.
Many policymakers take a public stand that small businesses are important and state they support policies that empower small business. Yet all too often, after votes are taken, policies are put in place which empower out-of-state corporations over locally-owned Kansas businesses.
Keep Kansans in Businesses is truly grassroots - created and operated by Kansas small business owners, with no national affiliation or associations with other organizations whose primary funding is provided by out-of-state entities.
Keep Kansans in Business is local, and we encourage you to help keep policies local in the best interest of the state economy.
