Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers Releases Statement on Updated Loan Programs

The following statement is attributed to Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers in response to the passage of Conference Committee Report on Senate Bill 86, which is a trailer bill to the City Utility Loan Program (originally Sub SB 88) and the Economic Recovery Loan Program (originally SB 15):

“I'd like to thank Speaker Pro-Tem Blaine Finch, Representative Jim Kelly, Senator Jeff Longbine, and the Revisor’s office for working together with the State Treasurer's Office on a trailer bill to the City Utility Loan Program,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “Our efforts made positive changes to the original law. It also included language allowing us to implement the Economic Recovery Loan Program sooner and provide a loan program to address additional extraordinary utility costs.”

“We're here to serve our Kansas communities and small businesses, and this is needed to help address these matters now while investigations are underway,” said Rogers. “This is precisely the kind of joint effort it takes to do the right things for our constituents. We're truly working together to keep the lights on for Kansas businesses and we plan to roll out these loan programs the first week of May.”
