In Her Own Words
"I’m a strong proponent of policies that encourage and increase the speed at which we shift to a system based on renewable energy. Kansas is uniquely poised to capitalize on wind energy, as our region has some of the highest wind production potential in the world. That’s why I’m working to create greater investment in Kansas’ wind-production infrastructure. We know that investing in durable, resilient infrastructure is an effective way to combat the effects of climate change, and I’m exploring that topic as a new member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

"Everyone should have access to quality, affordable health care, but right now too many Kansans can’t get the care they need or are faced with skyrocketing costs. No one should ever have to worry about affording a lifesaving treatment or going bankrupt because they or someone they love gets cancer or diabetes." 2
