Day at the Statehouse is Feb. 2

February 1, 2017

Thursday (Feb. 2) is the day set aside for Kansas newspaper editors and publishers to come to Topeka, discuss legislation and have lunch with legislators at the Kansas Press Association’s “Day at the Statehouse.”

As of Wednesday, we had more than 50 KPA members scheduled to attend the event. If you still want to attend, please do so but email Emily Bradury at so we'll be ready for you.

Rich Gannon, director of governmental affairs, said this day is important: “These one-on-one meetings are one key to our continued success at the Statehouse.”

Here's the schedule for the day:
