Chamber PAC Announces Endorsements in House and Senate General Elections
Topeka, KAN. (October 1, 2012) – The Chamber PAC today announced support for pro-business candidates in the 2012 general elections.
The Kansas Chamber’s legislative agenda sets an aggressive goal to build a strong private sector in Kansas by making our state the best in America to do business. To achieve that goal effectively, the Chamber PAC is committed to supporting candidates who believe in free market principles, a competitive tax climate and responsible government spending.
“During the difficult economic downturn some in the Kansas Senate and House opted for tax increases instead of responsible spending cuts,” said Chamber PAC Chairman Ivan Crossland. “Bloated state budgets, increased taxes and growing union and trial lawyer support are not the ingredients for private sector job creation. We thoughtfully selected candidates whose commitment to turn things around in Kansas matches our own.
“Our vision is to create an environment that encourages private sector job growth through a competitive tax climate. This will create a strong private sector to fund essential government services. That way, we all win.
“The uncompromising mission of the Chamber PAC is to grow jobs, not government. The business community in Kansas needs leaders in Topeka, like the legislators and candidates who have received Chamber PAC support, who share this vision.”
Please note there are a few districts where multiple pro-business incumbent House members were drawn into the same district. In those instances, the Chamber PAC Board has elected to stay-out of those General Elections.
