Last night I laid out my priorities for this year during the annual State of the State address. I wanted to share my agenda with you:

1. I will continue the fight to ensure access to quality, affordable healthcare to more than 165,000 Kansans by expanding Medicaid.
2. I will encourage both Republican and Democratic leaders in the state legislature to find bipartisan solutions to get Kansans vaccinated and get our economy back on track.
3. I will ensure that any budget that I sign protects constitutional funding for education.
4. I will focus on addressing the needs of our roads and bridges to ensure they are getting the funding they need so Kansans can safely travel across the state.
5. I will work to expand access to high-speed internet to every corner of the state because it is a game-changer for rural communities.

This list isn't exhaustive for what I hope we accomplish in the next legislative session, it's just a start. My biggest hope for the new session is for leaders from both sides of the aisle to put politics aside and fight to build a better Kansas for all.

We're living in a time like none other we've seen. Last week, I ordered flags lowered to half-staff to remember the more than 3000 Kansans we've lost these past ten months to COVID-19. My heart is with the friends and family of every life we've lost.

The new year and new legislative session is an opportunity for all of us. An opportunity to rebuild our economy -- especially by reinvesting in small businesses across the state. A chance to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. A moment to expand access to affordable healthcare to every single Kansan in the state.

But most importantly this year, working together isn't simply something I want -- it's something we owe to the people of Kansas. I'm calling on leaders from across the state to commit to finding common ground to build a stronger, healthier Kansas in 2021.

Let's rise, together, to meet this moment.
