Kansas Representative Ryckman,
.
Five years ago when aggressive Kansas school funding caught our attention, we literally spent hundreds of hours researching, compiling and sharing historical data. Not used by anyone then and likely not used again. Illegal immigration is still an ugly subject to discuss openly. But we will try again in support of the time we have already spent.
.
For your use, information and ideas.
.
When we looked at the raw data available for Kansas schools, one could easily conclude that we are paying for student needs that don’t exist on paper in the legislative requests. A great deal of money is provided by Districts K-12 for required learning in languages other than English. One ELL (English Language Learner) per District requires native language employee/educator to provide the equivalent for all classes/subjects K-12 with no requirement the ELL student ever become educated in English. Kansas records show over 100 different languages taught for K-12. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/23/how-to-spend-271573451-that-you-dont-have/
.
Also of interest, Kansas does not refer to providing an education to children of illegal immigrants. In Kansas we educate children of “Migrant Workers”. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/26/kansas-education-dollars-and-the-grapes-of-wrath/
.
This also requires the School District to provide free breakfasts, free lunches, free healthcare, free before school care, free after school care, free Summer daycare, etc. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/26/kansas-education-dollars-and-the-grapes-of-wrath/
.
And we pay to make sure the migrant workers know about this information. http://ksmigrant.org/
.
Over-all impact on school funding observation: 2001-2009 Kansas student population DECREASED by 2.8% but funding INCREASED by 155.9% /nolathe.net/2010/12/28/the-kansas-oopps-moment-and-five-year-penalty/
.

Please do not deny that Kansas is a “sanctuary State“.

Transparency in the Kansas House of Representatives: Some success

Last week the Kansas House of Representatives took votes on several amendments to its rules regarding transparency and understandability of the legislative process. Of the three most important amendments, two passed. The amendment that failed, however, was much more important than the other two.

The important amendment — the record all votes amendment — failed 51 to 67. This would have required that every non-trivial vote be recorded. Currently many important votes are by voice only, and no recording is made of who voted which way.

The limiting hours amendment passed 69 to 49. This would prevent the late-night sessions, where procrastination by the legislature has resulted in important business being conducted in the early morning hours.

The bundling amendment passed 82 to 35. This would prevent many unrelated bills being presented together for a single vote.

I’ve prepared a list of legislators and their votes on these amendments. I’ve also assigned weights to these votes, as one — the recording all votes amendment — is much more important than the others. So each member has a computed score, with higher numbers meaning the legislator is more concerned about operating transparently as opposed to the current ways. 42 Members voted in favor of transparency on all three amendments. But 34 voted against all three. The latter group includes the Speaker of the House, the Speaker Pro Tem, and the Majority Leader.

Looking forward: Will the Kansas Senate consider any of these reforms?

For me personally that’s very true “How I vote is none of your business!”

But what about our elected Representatives?  Is how they vote on our business, our business? In Kansas, apparently not. On January 27, 2015 the Kansas House of Representatives expressed their opinion.

Clearly orchestrated by the Republican Leadership (top 5 not highlighted above) a vote for transparency in voting was defeated. We only know how they voted because some brave soul asked for a Roll Call Vote (only done by request and not normal or required procedure).

Rep. Ron Ryckman’s justification will be added here- “blank at time of posting”.

Republicans insist they are the Big Tent Party. This tent has walls, can’t see in or out.

Concerned Kansas Citizens,

My name is Renee Slinkard and I got your name off of the immigration enforcement petition that I had on my website a few years ago that you signed. I presented that petition in the Committee hearings in Topeka. In just a few months I and with some help throughout Kansas submitted over 1,000 signatures. The problem was that in the Committee hearings you do not know how the representatives voted on the bills. So, to resolve this issue, Representative Rubin (best known as Judge Rubin) will be submitting an amendment on Tuesday that will provide for us to see how our representative’s vote. It is called “Record a Vote”. Also, he will submit a amendment to stop bundling bills and to stop having midnight sessions. All 3 of these amendments are important to the people of Kansas as there should be transparency in our legislative process. So, when there is an important bill such as immigration enforcement or reversing instate tuition on illegal aliens, or common core, we know how our Representative voted. Please Read Below. Your presence is very important; if you can’t be there please call and urge your Representative to vote in favor of “Record a Vote”, No Bundled Bills, and no late night sessions. Let our voices be heard!

The session is now open in Topeka and I will be sending you information on important issues, especially immigration, since you signed the petition I know you are with me on this important issue and want security, jobs, and no taxpayer dollars going toward illegal aliens.

Thank you

Renee

What happened to Monday?

Would you like to know how your KS House Representative Votes?

There will be a Kansas House Vote at 11:00 am on TUESDAY January 27th to determine if your State Representative will be required to record his vote on legislation that greatly affects you. This is one of the most important issues regarding the moral and ethical behavior of those we elect to public office.

Right now the Rules of the Kansas House do not require an elected Representative to record their votes on legislation to raise your taxes, give benefits to large corporations and regulate your life.

Be there in person or send someone. Meet at the door of the House Chamber by 10:30 am.

If you simply cannot make it in person you must call your legislator to let them know you support Record All Votes today and Monday!

11:00 am TUESDAY January 27, 2015

This 4 minute video was taken in Austin, Texas.  An over looked but major aspect of “VOTER I.D. LAWS” is that our elected legislators are issued a State provided photo identification card which authorizes and allows them to vote.

Kansas Speaker of the House Ray Merrick-  Charley Morasch wants to know………………….

Speaker Merrick’s response will be posted here:

Nancy,
 
I believe you and Lloyd deserve an explanation for this “rumor” as it has now been drawn to your attention.
 
Following a presentation that I made this last week-end in central Kansas about Agenda 21 and ICLEI, off camera I was asked to comment about the Johnson County and Kansas State Republican Party. Off hand my basic response was:
 
* The purpose of the Party Chairperson is to support and disseminate the Party Platform.
 
* The Party Platform is “the ethical and moral beliefs” of the electorate majority of that Party.
 
* If the Party Platform is wrong, change it until then support it.
 
* The Party does not endorse candidates.
 
* Candidates endorse the Party Platform.
 
* When candidates differ from the Party Platform, that should be known and specifically acknowledged by the candidate. (If there are 10 planks it is unreasonable to believe 100% agreement, but not a later surprise!)
 
* From the Bond/Eilert/Vratil strategies implemented by puppet Mary Birch at the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce, periodically the goals of The Chamber were measured against the voting results of State Legislators from Johnson County. http://www.opchamber.org/upload/file/2011-Voting-Record.pdf 
 
* The County and Kansas State Chairs’ job is simple, measure voting results as compared to the Party Platform and disseminate that information. Allow the electorate to influence and decide.
 
* The only evidence needed to defend my position is A) 2010 “Clean Sweep” all r’s deserve to win vs. B) The voting record of Vratil, Owens and Huntington which will again be supported in 2012 by Ronnie, Amanda, et al.
 
Do I want this job? Hell no! Will I serve if asked to meet these goals? Hell yes! Are there others that would do it better, only if I piss them off.
