When legislators return to the state Capitol in Topeka for the 2018 session, AARP Kansas staff and volunteers will be on hand to press for legislation that would help Kansans age 50-plus.

In the session that begins Jan. 8, lawmakers are expected to consider bills that would provide additional support for family caregivers, improve home- and community-based services for long-term care, keep consumers’ financial information secure and rein in utility rates.

AARP advocacy volunteers will ensure that lawmakers receive useful information about these issues and will help track legislative progress. The volunteers will talk with lawmakers on the phone, at the statehouse and in their districts.
