The Kansas team worked hard to gain such strong support in their state legislature. They're a testament to what can happen through simple meetings, phone calls, and emails with your state officials. The representatives in your district want to hear from their constituents; you just have to pick up the phone and make it happen.

If you're nervous about contacting your state legislators or are unsure of what to say, we've published a script you can follow when speaking to your state representatives. You don't have to follow it word for word, but it should point you in the right direction as you consider what to say.

Again, we're so proud of our team in Kansas, and we can't wait to report more good news in the coming weeks!
