Gov. Laura Kelly talks about commerce in Hutchinson & cutting food tax

In addition to increasing access to broadband, eliminating the food tax and creating an annual four-day state sales tax holiday for school supplies, Gov. Laura Kelly wants to help bring more businesses to Kansas.

“Commerce is sort of a 24/7 365-day agency that works with a lot of our communities,” she said during an interview on Tuesday with The News. “We’ve done a lot of work with Hutchinson over the past four years.”

Although Kelly cannot give any specifics about any projects, she said, “Commerce has been approached and there’s an opportunity in Reno County; they will do everything they can to ensure it becomes a reality.”

As for taxes on food, Kelly is adamant. She said with inflation and high food costs she wants to cut these taxes as soon as possible.
