This is the final Legislative Update I will write in my role as chief government relations officer at Kansas State University. I want to thank everyone over the years for their interest in the Kansas Legislature and issues of higher education and our university in government relations. Also thank you for the support and providing insight and information — I sincerely appreciate everyone helping me represent Kansas State University.
