Growing Kansas Jobs:
Bringing new, good jobs to our community is always one of Anthony Hensley’s top priorities as a State Senator. Unfortunately, thousands of Kansans are unemployed as a result of the global pandemic.
To make the Kansas economy work for working families, Anthony Hensley will continue to support policies that strengthen small businesses and create good paying jobs, and provide opportunities for Kansans.
Despite the 2020 Legislative Session being cut short due to COVID-19, Anthony Hensley proudly voted for the new, bipartisan 10-year Eisenhower Legacy Transportation Plan. This plan will help jump-start the Kansas economy by providing thousands of good-paying jobs and much-needed improvements to highways, roads, and bridges across the state. It will also invest at least $8 million in every Kansas county.
He will also continue to sponsor and support initiatives that help keep Kansas jobs from being exported, protect unemployed workers against workplace discrimination, strengthen work training and post-secondary/technical educational programs, and stop unscrupulous hiring practices.
