As Sam Brownback enters his third year as governor of Kansas, his administration continues to bring significant changes to the state as the new legislature brings its own change of character. This week on I’VE GOT ISSUES on KTWU, the program looks at the Main Street program as Kansas ends the state’s involvement, considers the challenges associated with the implementation of KanCare, and reflects on changing politics in the statehouse. “Kansas Ahead” on IGI airs Thursday, January 24, at 7:30 p.m. on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.

During the segment on the Main Street program, the directors of these efforts in Emporia, guest Casey Woods, and in Leavenworth, guest Wendy Scheidt, join the discussion. IGI visits Emporia for their “Midnight Madness” event.

And then IGI looks at the makeup of the current legislature, featuring Bob Beatty, Political Science Professor at Washburn University and political analyst for Kansas First News, and Stephen Koranda, KPR statehouse reporter, as guests.
