Capitol Dome-Rob Biesenbach
Kansas lawmakers, many of them new to the Statehouse as a result of the 2016 elections, will began their work in Topeka this week. You can be sure that AARP Kansas volunteers and staff will also be at the State Capitol working hard to educate legislators, both new and returning, about issues that impact those who are 50 and older.
Three piggy banks with retirement savings message
AARP Kansas is pressing state lawmakers to introduce a bill in 2017 that could help more private-sector workers save for retirement. The proposal, called “work and save,” would create a payroll-deduction plan that small businesses could offer to their workers. Participation would be voluntary for both employers and employees, and the plan would be portable when a worker changes jobs.
In the legislative session that begins Jan. 9, AARP Kansas once again will be backing a bill that could help family caregivers when a loved one comes home from a hospital stay.
