Capitol Update: Rep. Holscher says ‘leftovers’ from Brownback era hampered progress on popular bills

Rep. Cindy Holscher.

Each legislative session, we provide the Shawnee Mission area’s elected officials with the chance to share their thoughts about what’s happening in the state capitol. Rep. Cindy Holscher, Rep. Jan Kessinger and Sen. Jim Denning were scheduled to send updates this week. Here’s Rep. Holscher’s filing:

One thing they were not anticipating however, were the leftovers.
